128 History

The tradition that head coach Bill Snyder established between 1989-2005 at K-State will continue beginning September 5 as the architect of the greatest turnaround in college football history will once again stroll the sidelines of the stadium that now bears his own name. Snyder gives the Wildcats instant credibility with his 136 career wins, 11 bowl games, four Big 12 North Division Titles and 2003 Big 12 title.

Snyder has assembled a coaching staff at KState with over 205 years of experience at virtually every level of the game. Masters of the fundamentals, unbridled enthusiasts and passionate individuals with the highest of values, the K-State staff is comprised of four former head coaches and five coaches with coordinator experience. The group has also combined for 77 postseason bowl berths.

Led by captains Carson Coffman, Alex Hrebec, Jeron Mastrud and Nick Stringer, the Cats possess a solid core of returning lettermen on both sides of the ball, including numerous key starters back on campus from last year’s team. Snyder and the K-State coaching staff will have plenty of experience with which to work as they look to return the program to a winning mindset after a productive spring.

Kansas State has a long-standing tradition of producing All-Americans, national award candidates and sending student-athletes to the professional ranks. Josh Freeman (pictured) re-wrote the Wildcat passing record books in 2008 to become K-State’s most prolific passer in school history. Freeman went on to become a first round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2009 NFL Draft.

Since 1993, Kansas State has won an average of nearly nine games per season, and, as a result, has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the best programs in all of college football. Since the start of the 1993 season, few programs can match Kansas State’s win total of 135 games or its winning percentage of nearly 75 percent. In fact, under Bill Snyder, K-State became just the second program in the history of college football, and remains one of four programs, to win 11 games six times in a seven-year span from 1997-2003. Kansas State’s success in the Big 12 Conference - which formed in 1996 - also possesses few peers. The Wildcats have captured four Big 12 North Division titles and participated in three Big 12 Championship games - claiming the 2003 Big 12 crown when it defeated No. 1 Oklahoma. In 2007, the Wildcats also became just the fourth program in the Big 12 to reach the 60-win plateau in Big 12 league games. K-State also ranks fourth in the Big 12 in number of all-time conference road wins with 26. The Wildcats have also been a fixture on the bowl circuit. From 1992-2003, K-State was one of just eight programs in the nation to travel to a postseason bowl in all 11 years. On an individual level, Kansas State has produced 90 all-conference performers (combined Big 8/12) and 45 All-Americans during its rise to prominence since 1993. Kansas State has also had 44 players selected in the NFL Draft over the past 15 seasons and is currently in the midst of a streak that has seen at least one Wildcat drafted in 16 straight years.


K-State is one of just four schools nationally to ever win 11 games six times over a seven-year stretch (1997-2003) under legendary head coach Bill Snyder


“I can think of two things that have lived up to their billing. They are Kansas State football fans and Michael Jordan. You cannot sell either of them short and they both get it done.� - Fiesta Bowl Executive Director John Junker

Kansas State has traveled the three largest crowds ever to cross state lines to watch a college football game at the 1997 Cotton, 1997 Fiesta and 2000 Cotton Bowls


K-State’s recent bowl history is virtually unmatched in the ranks of college football. The Wildcats were one of just nine programs nationally to earn a postseason bowl berth in 12 of 14 seasons from 1993-2006. Since 1993, Kansas State has played in seven different bowls in three different states, including Arizona (Copper, Fiesta, Insight), Texas (Cotton, Alamo, Texas) and California (Holiday). • 2006 Texas Bowl • 2004 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl • 2002 Holiday Bowl Champions • 2001 Insight.com Bowl • 2001 Cotton Bowl Champions • 1999 Holiday Bowl Champions

• 1998 Alamo Bowl • 1997 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Champions • 1997 Cotton Bowl • 1995 Holiday Bowl Champions • 1994 Aloha Bowl • 1993 Copper Bowl Champions

Since 1993, K-State has averaged an announced attendance of nearly 30,000 fans at each of its bowl games played in the Continental U.S. The Wildcats had an estimated 45,000 fans travel to Dallas for the 1997 Cotton Bowl - a figure nearly matched for the 2000 Cotton Bowl - while the largest crowd ever to cross state lines to watch a college football game went with the Wildcats to Tempe, Ariz., for the Wildcats’ 1997 Fiesta Bowl victory over Syracuse. Wildcat fans were again out in force at the 2003 Fiesta Bowl as an estimated crowd of just under 40,000 K-State faithful traveled to Arizona. Most recently, an estimated 25,000 Wildcat fans were in full force for Kansas State’s matchup with Rutgers in the 2006 Texas Bowl.


The Big 12 Conference has established a consistent level of national success on the field and in the classroom as it enters its 14th season in 2009-10. Kansas State continues to leave an indelible stamp on the Big 12 Conference, which has developed a reputation as one of, if not the premiere football conference in the nation. A conference title, multiple bowl games, All-Americans and national award winners are just a few reasons why K-State is among the elite in the Big 12 Conference and in college football. Since the league’s formation and under Bill Snyder’s leadership, Kansas State has made three appearances in the league’s championship game. That figure ranks as the third-most all time in the Big 12. The Wildcats also rank fourth overall in Big 12 conference victories with 62. In league road games, Kansas State has totaled 26 wins. Only Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska have claimed more victories in enemy stadiums than the Wildcats. On the postseason bowl circuit, Kansas State’s nine bowl appearances since the league’s formation also rank among the Big 12 leaders, with only two programs claiming more bowl berths than the Wildcats. Individually, Kansas State has been well represented among the conference’s postseason award winners. Since 1996, 71 different Wildcats have received first, second or third-team all-conference recognition from either the league’s coaches or the Associated Press. K-State has also produced three Defensive Players of the Year, eight Newcomers of the Year (five defense/three offense) and three Defensive Freshmen of the Year.

K-State ranks near the top of the Big 12 in league games won, road wins and championship game appearances

Kansas State started a new tradition in 2002, as the football program announced the inaugural Ring of Honor Class. The distinction is designed to recognize those in the football program who have distinguished themselves on and off the field. Among the criteria considered is graduation from Kansas State with a student-athlete having been out of school for at least five years, quality of character, whether the person is an excellent representative of K-State and whether a person has achieved performance that warrents consensus All-America level status at K-State. The inaugural class, which was honored in 2002, included Lynn Dickey, Steve Grogan, Jaime Mendez, Sean Snyder, Gary Spani and Veryl Switzer (pictured left). The Class of 2008 included former Wildcat greats David Allen, Martin Gramatica, Terence Newman and Mark Simoneau, bringing the total number in the elite fraternity to 10.

SUCCESS STORIES There is perhaps no program in the country that has done a better job of developing junior college talent than Kansas State. And with some of the nation’s best junior college football played right in its own backyard, it’s easy to see why K-State has been able to identify and cultivate the best of the best. Since the mid 1990s, Kansas State has seen 25 of its former junior college players earn All-Big 12 accolades, with seven of those going on to be selected as an All-American. The Wildcats have also produced eight Big 12 Newcomers of the Year from the junior college ranks, while a total of 29 of its former junior college players have gone on to play on some level in the professional ranks. Among the conference newcomer-of-the-year selections, five were on the defensive side of the ball as Kansas State produced the league’s top newcomer in 4-of-5 seasons from 1997 through 2001. On offense, quarterback Michael Bishop was named the Big 12’s Offensive Newcomer of the Year in 1997 before going on to win the Davey O’Brien Award (nation’s most outstanding quarterback) and finish as the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 1998. Most recently, K-State swept the honors in 2007 for the second time in school history and Brandon Banks garnered Offensive Newcomer of the Year honors in 2008 after breaking onto the scene in his first season.

Sunflower State talent has been a big part of Kansas State’s emergence on the college football scene. No fewer than 25 Kansans have received all-conference honors from either the league’s coaches or the Associated Press since 1990, while a total of 18 Kansans have earned All-America recognition. Included in that group are a pair of Big 12 Defensive Players of the Year in linebacker Mark Simoneau and defensive back Terence Newman, two Academic All-Americans in defensive back Jon McGraw and offensive lineman Ryan Lilja, a Thorpe Award winner (Newman), a Butkus Award semifinalist (Simoneau), a Biletnikoff Award finalist (Jordy Nelson) and a Groza Award runner-up (Jamie Rheem). Several of those have gone on to promising NFL careers and are currently on NFL rosters, including Lilja (Indianapolis Colts), McGraw (Kansas City Chiefs), Nelson (Green Bay Packers), Newman (Dallas Cowboys), Simoneau (New Orleans Saints), Darren Sproles (San Diego Chargers) and Ian Campbell (St. Louis Rams).

Head Coach Bill Snyder has always maintained a strong reputation for evaluating and developing talent and K-State’s rich walk-on tradition and the success of those student-athletes solidifies that claim. Over the years, K-State has seen a large number of student-athletes from the state of Kansas and from across the country head to K-State as a walk-on and later flourish in the program. In fact, K-State currently has four former walk-ons playing in the National Football League in Jordy Nelson, Jon McGraw, Rock Cartwright and Ian Campbell. Most recently, Campbell arrived at Kansas State as a walk-on from Cimarron and left five years later as a three-time AllBig 12 performer. Also, sophomore linebacker Alex Hrebec earned Freshman All-America honors in 2008 after coming on to the scene as a walk-on. The St. Louis, Mo., native was later elected a captain for 2009.

K-State currently has four former walk-ons playing in the NFL


Kansas State’s play on special teams has been unparalleled since 1990. In the area of blocked kicks, K-State has the fifth-most blocks in the nation since 2002 with 33, which includes a nation-leading and school-record-tying eight total blocks in 2008 (four punts, two extra points and two field goals). Also, Kansas State has amassed 49 total blocked kicks since 1996 and currently ranks second among Big 12 schools in total blocks in the 12-plus year history of the league. And, in non-offensive touchdowns, the Wildcats have ranked among the nation’s best over the past 10 seasons. Since 1999, the Wildcats rank second nationally in non-offensive touchdowns with 68, behind only Virginia Tech (70), and have collected 24 non-offensive scores since 2006, which are the most of any school in the country over that span. Under head coach Bill Snyder, four Wildcats have earned All-America status on special teams, including punter Sean Snyder (1992), kicker Martin Gramatica (1997, 1998), punt returner David Allen (1998, 1999) and kicker Jamie Rheem (2000).

91 In the Pros Kansas State, all-time, has seen 91 players who played on special teams go on to play in the professional ranks.

68 Non-offensive TD’s The Wildcats are second nationally since 1999 in non-offensive touchdowns with 68 and lead the nation since 2006 with 24 scores.


Precise. Intense. Tireless. Accomplished. Dedicated. Caring. Professional. Kansas State University's head football coach Bill Snyder is all of these and much more. To understand the full picture of Bill Snyder, it is necessary to acknowledge his values, sincerity and warmth, along with the concern he shows for the people around him - all qualities that solidify his reputation as an innovator in college athletics. It’s those same values, and the work ethic instilled by Snyder, that have given rise to the greatest turnaround in college football. Charged with the mission of ending a 0-26-1 streak upon his arrival in 1989, Snyder has guided the Wildcats from the depths of college football to being one of only four schools in the history of the game to post 11 victories in a span of six of seven seasons (1997-2003). He also led K-State to 11 consecutive bowl games between the 1993 and 2003 seasons and had the Wildcats ranked in the nation’s Top 10 during eight of his last 10 years as coach, including a No. 6 ranking in 2002, a No. 8 ranking heading into the 2003 bowl season and a top-5 ranking for the entire 1998 regular season. Snyder has also led the Cats to a school-best No. 6 final ranking. Under Snyder, the Wildcats rolled to a 57-5-1 home record in the 1990s, the fifth-best home record in college football during that decade. Coach Snyder has been successful in places where they had only previously dreamed about winning. Today, at Kansas State University, Bill Snyder has instilled fresh ideas, unbridled enthusiasm, and, above all, success with a touch of class. Snyder, who returns for his 18th season at K-State in 2009 after three years of retirement, has assembled a coaching staff at K-State with over 205 years of experience at virtually every level of the game. Masters of the fundamentals, unbridled enthusiasts and passionate individuals with the highest of values, the K-State staff is comprised of four former head coaches and five coaches with coordinator experience. The group has also combined for 77 postseason bowl berths and eight of the nine assistant coaches have either played or coached at Kansas State prior to this season.

“Bill Snyder isn’t the coach of the year, and he isn’t the coach of the decade. He’s the coach of the century.” Barry Switzer, former Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys head coach


“To me, the best football coach in the country is Bill Snyder.� Dick Vermeil, former long-time NFL head coach


Under the direction of head strength and conditioning coach Mike Kent and assistant strength and conditioning coach Darren Honeycutt, the Kansas State strength and conditioning program is committed to maximizing the on-field performance of every student-athlete. The program designed by Kent and Honeycutt combines weight training, plyometrics, stretching and flexibility exercises, running and proper nutrition to enhance each student-athlete’s ability to compete. It is a formula that has worked well for Kent during his 24-year career. At Kansas State and at his previous stop at the University of Pittsburgh, Kent helped develop nine NFL Draft picks - quarterback Josh Freeman (2009), wide receiver Jordy Nelson (2008), defensive end Rob Jackson (2008), wide receiver Yamon Figurs (2007), running back Thomas Clayton (2007), linebacker Zach Diles (2007), tackles Rob Petitti (2005) and Charles Spencer (2006) and defensive back Josh Lay (2006). Kent also oversaw the physical development of eight NFL Draft selections while at the University of Louisville, including wide receiver Deion Branch, who went on to become the MVP of the 2005 Super Bowl for the New England Patriots. At Appalachian State, Kent trained linebacker Dexter Coakley, who went on to earn multiple All-Pro honors with the Dallas Cowboys.

SECOND WIND PROGRAM Kansas State University is committed to helping its student-athletes complete their bachelor’s degree programs. Through the Second Wind Program, former K-State student-athletes who have gone on to pursue professional football or other career opportunities prior to graduation are provided with a comprehensive plan for completing their degrees. This flexible plan is custom tailored to the needs of each individual student-athlete and allows former players to return to K-State to complete their degree tracts or in many instances remain in their home communities to earn their K-State degrees through local accredited institutions or by distance education. Athletics academic counselors and academic advisors from each college help guide former student-athletes through the process of degree completion to develop a custom graduation timeline. The program also provides information on re-admission, financial aid and even local housing options for those that choose to return to Manhattan.

Kansas State Wildcats are a regular part of the annual NFL Draft. In fact, K-State has had at least one player drafted in each of the last 16 seasons. Since the formation of the Big 12 in 1996, 40 different Wildcats have heard their names called on draft day, ranking Kansas State among the Big 12 leaders in number of players taken in the NFL Draft. Under the direction of head coach Bill Snyder, K-State has sent a total of 92 players to the NFL as either draft picks or free agents. In addition to the intensive instruction Kansas State players receive from the coaching staff and the top-caliber competition the Wildcats face week-in, week-out in the Big 12 Conference, K-State regularly hosts NFL scouts at its games and practices. Kansas State also hosts a spring NFL pro day, which each year brings a large number of NFL representatives to the K-State campus, including scouts, coaches and general managers.

Kansas State’s winning tradition consistently keeps the Wildcats in the national spotlight. The Wildcats are among the most frequently-covered programs in the nation and easily the largest media draw in the state of Kansas. As a result, K-State football has become a household name on the college football landscape, with the program’s Powercat logo becoming a universally-recognized symbol for excellence in college football. Each fall, Kansas State hosts writers and broadcasters from across the country as the nation’s most recognized media outlets descend on The Little Apple. K-State also sits at the crossroads of Kansas, nearly an equal distance from the big-city metropolis of Kansas City and the state’s largest population center, Wichita. K-State is also less than an hour drive from the state capitol of Topeka. As a result, the Wildcats regularly have a regional media following that rivals any program in the Big 12. The Wildcats also maintain a consistent presence on television. Since 1990, Kansas State has made 111 television appearances. And since the formation of the Big 12 Conference that number has continued to grow. During the past 13 seasons, over 70 percent of K-State games have been televised either nationally or regionally, making the Wildcats one of the most visable programs in the entire country.


The Vanier Sports Complex, an all-in-one facility that houses the K-State football program, completed an $8 million overhaul that was finished in time for the 2007 season. The renovations in 2007 came on the heels of a more than $13 million stadium expansion that included 31 new luxury sky suites on the east side of Bill Snyder Family Stadium in 1999. The expansion raised the number of sky suites at the stadium to 57, included the addition of 2,000 club seats and a new upper deck seating area that pushed the capacity of the facility over 50,000. In addition to Bill Snyder Family Stadium, Kansas State’s practice facilities include a 94,000 square foot indoor practice facility (shown below), which recently received a complete upgrade with the installation of new FieldTurf, that is believed to be the largest in the nation and three regulation-sized grass practice fields. As a result, K-State has the ability to practice and prepare on a variety of surfaces in almost any weather condition. K-State’s commitment to excellence is never more evident than when one views the current renovations taking place in and around the Vanier Football Complex. Among the impressive improvements: a newly-renovated 15,000-plus square foot weight room and athletic training facility, a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy center, new and expanded player’s locker room and lounge area complete with flat-screen televisions, an upgraded equipment distribution center, technologically advanced meeting rooms with the latest in video equipment, and new offices and meeting space for the coaching staff. One of the most dramatic pieces of the project was completed in 2006 when K-State finished construction on a reconfiguration of the north end zone seating at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The upgrades resulted in new tiered bench seating with a capacity for 1,900 patrons and a sweeping runway leading from the locker room to the playing field.


On Saturdays in Kansas during the fall, the entire state’s attention turns to Manhattan, where the Little Apple becomes the center of the universe for Wildcat fans. Whether they are tailgating in the parking lot or gathering in Aggieville for the march to Bill Snyder Family Stadium, Kansas State fans have just one thing on their minds, and that’s helping the Wildcats secure a victory. Which is why there is no better atmosphere in college football than the one that exists inside Bill Snyder Family Stadium on gameday. K-State fans, draped from head to toe in purple, arrive early, stay late and in between make Wagner Field one of the college football’s most intimidating environments. Kansas State’s student section, over 9,000 strong, stands the entire game, while the ‘Pride of Wildcat Land’ marching band belts out traditional foot-stompers like “The Wabash Cannonball” and Willie the Wildcat whips the stadium into a fevered pitch with his rousing K-S-U WILDCATS! cheer. Once the game begins, K-State fans enthusiastically celebrate each first down and score, finishing the public address announcer’s catchy “Good for a Wildcat FIRST DOWN” and “TOUCHDOWN” for him and adding the appropriate arm motions, while two massive videoboards highlight all the action. It’s a special environment in a wonderful setting. It’s Bill Snyder Family Stadium on gameday. And there’s nothing quite like it.

A lot more goes into being a student-athlete at Kansas State than just working out and going to class. KState’s Life Skills program focuses on encouraging student-athletes to become strong leaders and positive role models. K-State players are also encouraged to get involved in their community and annually participate in a number of service projects throughout the region. The goal of these programs is not only to enhance the student-athlete experience but also to expand character and provide leadership opportunities. By getting involved, K-State players gain a strong sense of selfworth, while experiencing the personal satisfaction that comes from volunteering. K-State football players serve a number of different programs, many of which focus on the Manhattan region’s youth population. From the Read-2-Achieve program to Kats for Kids and Jr. Wildcats and Walkin’ With A Wildcat, K-State football players are a consistent presence in the lives of the region’s youth. K-State players also take part in the annual Special Olympics Bowl-A-Thon, ban with other K-State studentathletes to fight hunger through Cats for Cans, and make a difference in the lives of the region’s older population through Senior Cats, a program that is devoted to visiting the area’s retirement homes and senior centers. Head Coach Bill Snyder is also very active in the community as he is involved with organizations including the Kansas Mentors Council, Kansas Leadership Council, Kansas Leadership Center, Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, KSU Leadership Studies Advancement Council, the Terry C. Johnson Cancer Research Center, the Manhattan Community Foundation and the Kansas Masonic Partnership for Life.


K-State recognized as Scholar Capital of America K-State is a national leader among public universities in the total number of Rhodes, Marshall, Truman, Goldwater, and Udall scholarship winners since 1986. For Truman and Goldwater scholars, K-State is the all-time number one in the nation among public universities. In 2008-2009, K-State students earned Rhodes, Truman, Udall, Goldwater, Fulbright, and Rotary International scholarships. K-State has third national professor of the year With its third national Carnegie/CASE Professor of the Year named in 2008 and nine state winners, K-State ranks in the top 10 of all public and private colleges.

A student-athlete’s life involves more than academics and athletics. Like most college students, studentathletes need to relax and have a good time, and Manhattan is the place to do just that. Manhattan is a progressive community of 47,916 people located in a region which includes a total population of nearly 80,000. A two-hour drive or half-hour commuter flight from Kansas City, Manhattan reflects the joys and opportunities of big-city living while retaining a friendly, open atmosphere. Manhattan has many appealing places to shop, eat and socialize. An award-winning shopping mall (below) is located in the heart of the downtown region, and Aggieville - a district of shops and restaurants just beyond the southern border of campus - continues to be particularly popular with students. There are several beautiful parks and walkways throughout the city, while picturesque Tuttle Creek Reservoir sits just five miles from campus for seasonal swimming, water skiing and boating. Additionally, the 12,000-plus-seat Bramlage Coliseum has become a favorite stop for major concerts throughout the year. Over the past several years, acts such as Will Ferrell, Sara Evans, Dierks Bentley, Larry the Cable Guy and Ben Folds have performed at Bramlage Coliseum. Around the holidays, Manhattan bustles with activity and last year approximately 15,000 revelers took to the streets of Aggieville to celebrate the Little Apple at the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop (middle right) that transforms the town into a mini Times Square celebration.

2009 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

2009 SEASON PREVIEW

THE TRADITION CONTINUES ecause the Hall of Fame can wait. Because family is what B matters most. Because hometown heroes become legends. Because Wildcat Victory is more than a song. The tradition that head coach Bill Snyder established between 1989-2005 at Kansas State will continue beginning September 5 as the architect of the greatest turnaround in college football history has come out of retirement and will once again stroll the sidelines of the stadium that now bears his own name. Snyder, with his return, gives the Wildcats instant credibility with his 136 career wins, 11 bowl games, four Big 12 North Division Titles and 2003 Big 12 Championship. 42 KANSAS STATE FOOTBALL

Snyder and the coaching staff that he has assembled, which includes three former head coaches, 77 combined bowl appearances, 205 years of combined coaching experience and a bevy of coaches with Kansas State ties, will begin fall practice on August 5 before opening the 2009 campaign on September 5 at home against Massachusetts. After two consecutive seasons without a bowl game, Snyder will look to build on the 5-7 record posted by last year’s squad that finished fourth in the Big 12 North. With an ample of returning lettermen, including numerous key starters back on campus from last year’s team, Snyder will have

plenty of experience with which to work as the new coaching staff looks to return the program to a winning mindset after a productive spring. The Wildcats spent the majority of spring practice working on fundamentals, stirring competition at every position and working to get accustomed to the intensity and focus demanded by Snyder and his staff on a daily basis. Now, the Cats will look to carry that intensity, focus and determination into the fall. The depth chart was wide open entering spring ball as players began to earn their starting roles, and now with the infusion of even more talent in the summer/fall, numerous positions remain up for grabs.


2009 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

OFFENSE Snyder has always been one of the nation’s most innovated offensive coaches and K-State will benefit in 2009 from not only his expertise but also the offensive minds of two former head coaches in co-offensive coordinators Dana Dimel and Del Miller. Snyder and company have always designed and utilized an offensive plan that best fits the team’s personnel and 2009 should be no different. One thing has always stayed the course for Kansas State teams under Snyder: the Wildcats will run an offensive system that puts the team in the best position to score points and win games. With five returning starters on an offense that averaged 402 yards of total offense a game in 2008, including several returners along the offensive line, there is plenty of experience and firepower at key positions as the Wildcats enter fall camp. The squad will see a new quarterback emerge as the starter in 2009 and will look for some guys to step up and add depth to the running back and wide receiver spots. QUARTERBACK One of the biggest voids needed to be filled by the Wildcats this season will be at the quarterback position after the departure of three-year starter Josh Freeman. Freeman, who decided to forego his senior season of eligibility in order to enter the NFL Draft, was the offensive leader of the Wildcats for the last three seasons. Last season, Freeman became Kansas State’s most prolific passer as the Grandview, Mo., native set new school career marks for pass completions (680), attempts (1,151), yards (8,078), touchdowns (44) and total offense (8,421). The Wildcats enter fall practices with numerous candidates vying for the position, but the edge heading into the season would have to go to junior Carson Coffman. Coffman, who saw action in six of the Wildcats’ games last season, completed 61-percent of his passes for a total of 282 yards and a touchdown, and emerged as the No. 1 signal caller with a very solid spring practice. Coffman will continue to battle with current redshirt freshmen Collin Klein and Joseph Kassanavoid as well as junior college transfer Daniel Thomas upon his arrival. Thomas originally signed with K-State for the 2008 season and now appears ready to challenge for the starting spot. Thomas is considered to be a dualthreat quarterback, something that Snyder has been known to utilize in the past. As a sophomore at Northwest Mississippi Junior College, he rushed for 562 yards and six touchdowns while completing 24-of-51 passes for 450 yards and two touchdowns. Klein is big and athletic at 6-5 and 231 and is a true field general, while Kassanavoid’s size (6-5, 239) and strong right arm

are his biggest assets. Both have reaped the benefits of developing both physically and mentally after a year in the program. Also thrown into the mix will be senior transfer Grant Gregory (6-1, 210). Gregory spent the past three seasons as a reserve at South Florida and will have one year of eligibilty remaining. Adding depth to the position will also be sophomore Trey Scott. A Look at the Quarterbacks Carson Coffman (6-3, 212, Jr.) Collin Klein (6-5, 231, RFr.) or Joseph Kassanavoid (6-5, 239, RFr.) Grant Gregory (6-1, 210, Sr.) Daniel Thomas (6-2, 227, Jr.) Trey Scott (6-2, 205, So.) RUNNING BACK With all three of last year’s starting running backs returning, and the addition of a few electrifying playmakers in the 2009 recruiting class, the depth at running back runs deep, and the race for the starting role should be heavily contested. Senior Keithen Valentine emerged in the spring as the No. 1 running back and will look for a breakout senior season in 2009. Valentine saw significant playing time last season after starting three games and totaling 129 yards and one touchdown. Redshirt freshman Jarell Childs moved up the depth chart with an impressive spring and will provide the Wildcats a bigger and more physical option out of the backfield. Thomas is also a capable running back who could see playing time in the backfield as well, along with Frank Delarue. K-State added several talented new recruits to the backfield in incoming freshmen John Hubert, Tramaine Thompson and Timothy Flanders, and come the fall, the trio will make for even more competition at the position. A Look at the Running Backs Keithen Valentine (5-8, 193, Sr.) Jarell Childs (6-1, 220, RFr.) Frank Delarue (5-8, 200, So.) Daniel Thomas (6-2, 227, Jr.) WIDE RECEIVER The wide receiver position will continue to be a bright spot for the Wildcats this season, as a trio of seniors will lead the team at the position. Senior Brandon Banks, who emerged as one of the speediest receivers in the nation last year, will team with seniors Attrail Snipes and Aubrey Quarles to give the Wildcats a solid nucleus of wideouts.

CARSON COFFMAN

Outlook

Banks, who was selected as the Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year last season, led the Wildcats in receptions (67), receiving yards (1,049) and receiving touchdowns (9). Banks also ranked fifth in the Big 12 in receiving yards per game as well as ranking fifth in all-purpose yards per game. Quarles finished last season with a respectable 34 receptions for a total of 407 yards and one touchdown and will look for an even more productive senior season in 2009. Lamark Brown, who played wide receiver in 2007 and running back for a majority of 2008, gives K-State a big and athletic weapon at the wideout spot as the junior has caught 27 passes over the past two seasons at both the running back and wide receiver positions. Junior Adrian Hilburn will look to bounce back from an injury in 2008, while Cole Bachamp, Bobby Hauver, Matt Wykes and Bryce Vignery will also look to provide some depth and athleticism at the position after productive springs. A Look at the Wide Receivers Brandon Banks (5-7, 150, Sr.) Lamark Brown (6-3, 225, Jr.) Attrail Snipes (6-1, 180, Sr.) Aubrey Quarles (5-11, 195, Sr.) Adrian Hilburn (6-1, 195, Jr.) Bobby Hauver (6-3, 185, Fr.) Cole Bachamp (6-0, 175, So.) Bryce Vignery (6-0, 195, Sr.) Matt Wykes (6-2, 209, Sr.) TIGHT ENDS Jeron Mastrud returns for his senior season and will anchor the tight end position for Kansas State in 2009, but the Cats have added some key depth at the position with several quality young players. Mastrud, who was second on the team in receptions last season with 37 for a total of 435 yards and two touchdowns, has been a consistent performer and will look to contend for postseason honors in 2009. Junior Gabe Gantz, and freshmen Braden Wilson, Travis Tannahill and Jay Hanley could also push for playing time. Wilson and Hanley are both physical blockers and could also see time at the fullback position. A Look at the Tight Ends Jeron Mastrud (6-6, 253, Sr.) Braden Wilson (6-4, 245, Fr.)

OFFENSIVE LINE Though Kansas State lost three regular starters from last year’s squad, which ranked fourth in the Big 12 in sacks allowed, the Wildcats do return four players along the offensive line that started no fewer than three games a year ago and welcome the addition of several key players who redshirted in 2008. Tackle Nick Stringer, an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection last season, will look to have a breakout senior season after starting all 12 games in 2008 and enters the year with 23 career starts under his belt. The Wildcats also return an eight-game starter at guard in senior Brock Unruh, a five-game starter in guard/center Zach Kendall and three-game starters at guard in Colten Freeze and Eric Benoit. Stringer and Aufner give new line coach Charlie Dickey solid options at tackle, while redshirt sophomore Zach Hanson will also push for playing time. Aufner earned the coaching staff’s praises during the spring practice period. Redshirt junior Trevor Viers has seen significant playing time in the past, and is expected to challenge Kendall for a starting spot at center this season, while Freeze, Unruh, Wade Weibert, Kenneth Mayfield, Ethan Douglas and Benoit give Dickey and company solid options at the guard spot. A Look at the Offensive Line Nick Stringer, tackle (6-6, 285, Sr.) Clyde Aufner, tackle (6-7, 290, So.) Zach Hanson, tackle (6-8, 320, So.) Kaleb Drinkgern, tackle (6-7, 270, So.)

Koenning and Cosh will not have to start completely from scratch, though, as K-State returns eight starters from last year’s squad that fought through an up-and-down season in 2008 but could be poised for a turnaround with continued improvement.

DEFENSIVE LINE The overall productivity of any defense usually begins and ends up front in the trenches and Kansas State will certainly be looking to develop more consistency from this unit throughout fall camp and the 2009 season. The Wildcats will look to fill the large void left by graduating senior Ian Campbell at the defensive end position. Campbell, a three-time All-Big 12 selection, recorded 47 tackles last season, including eight for loss, which was second on the team. He also tallied a team-best 4.5 sacks and blocked a school-record three field goal attempts. Even while losing a talent such as Campbell, the Wildcats do return three starters up front, including both tackles. And with that game experience comes plenty of potential for improvement. One of the brightest stars on last year’s entire defensive unit was then-freshman Brandon Harold. Harold, who saw time at both defensive end and defensive tackle in 2008, was honored at the

end of last season with his selection as a first team freshman All-American by College Football News and Sporting News and was one of two Wildcat true freshmen to start during the season. The defensive end totaled 45 tackles, 10.5 for loss, with 3.0 sacks en route to honorable mention all-conference honors in 2008, and KState will certainly have a big impact player up front in Harold to build its defense. Another returning starter up front is senior defensive end Eric Childs, who started 11 games while seeing action in all 12 games on the Wildcats’ 2008 schedule. Childs, who tallied 52 tackles, 6.5 for loss, with 2.5 sacks last season, will be looked upon to provide senior leadership for this defensive unit. Payton Kirk, Kadero Terrell and Antonio Felder will also give the Wildcats some depth, as will newcomer Grant Valentine, a junior college transfer. At the tackle position, K-State will look towards senior Daniel Calvin as well as juniors Xzavier Stewart and Gabriel Crews, sen-

ior Chidubamu Abana and sophomore Raphael Guidry to provide depth along front for the Wildcats. Calvin has the most experience of the group, as he started five games at tackle last season. But, senior Jeffrey Fitzgerald may be one of the more talented players on the entire defensive side of the ball as he will look to have an immediate impact along the defensive front after transferring from Virginia and sitting out the 2008 season.

Hrebec came on strong towards the end of his freshman campaign and ranked second on the team in tackles in 2008. Hrebec, a walk-on last season, totaled 68 tackles on the season with one interception, a forced fumble and 2.5 sacks on his way to being named to the honorable mention All-Freshman team by College Football News. The Wildcats will look to Hrebec for continued improvement and leadership throughout 2009 as he looks to solidify his starting role at the position. Pomele will also look to make strides heading into his senior season after starting six games as a junior in 2008. Pomele, who ranked fourth on the team in tackles last season, tallied 58 tackles, 7.5 for loss, with one sack and two forced fumbles. Seniors John Houlik and Hansen Sekona give the Wildcats and linebacker coach/co-defensive coordinator Chris Cosh two very experienced and talented options at the linebacker positions. Houlik played in only eight games last year, tallying 29 tackles as well as a forced fumble, but the senior does possess the most experience of the group with 29 career games played. Sekona saw playing time in all 12 games last season as he tallied 23 tackles, 3.5 for loss, as well as a fumble recovery during his junior campaign. Providing the Wildcats some depth at the position are Kevin Rohleder, Josh Berard, a junior college transfer in 2008 who sat out last season after suffering an injury, Blake Slaughter, Kadero Terrell, Jack Reed and Brian Hertzog.

SECONDARY With three starters returning to a secondary that ranked near the middle of the Big 12 last season in pass defense, along with several newcomers at the defensive back position, the Wildcat secondary should be a point of emphasis during fall camp. Junior cornerback Joshua Moore is coming of a breakout season for the Wildcats which saw him earn honorable mention AllSophomore honors by College Football News as well as an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection by the Associated Press and an All-Big 12 Second Team selection by the Kansas City Star. Moore led K-State in tackles during his sophomore campaign with 76 tackles, five for loss, as well as accumulating three interceptions and one fumble recovery. Reliable safeties Chris Carney, Courtney Herndon and Tysyn Hartman also return to give co-defensive coordinator/secondary coach Vic Koenning some experience. Herndon, a senior, started 10 games at the strong safety position last season where he accumulated 61 tackles, 4.5 for loss, along with 1.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries. Hartman, a sophomore, held down the free safety position for the final eight games of the season of his freshman campaign, tallying 49 total tackles. Carney started the first four games of the season at free safety and finished the year with 53 tackles and five pass breakups. Sophomore Logan Dold will also get a look in the secondary after making the switch from running back during spring practice. All four players will look to provide experience to a secondary looking for continued improvement during the fall. Opposite Moore, the cornerback position race looks to be wide open, with several players making a push for increased playing time this season. Returning seniors Otis Johnson and Billy McClellan saw extensive playing time last season and will look to make a push back into a starting role. Dahrnaz Tigner will also give the coaching staff some versatility as the junior possesses the size for a safety and the speed of a corner. Several secondary prospects signed during the spring will provide the returners competition come fall training camp, including Troy Butler, who went through spring drills, Thomas Ferguson, Emmanuel Lamur and Torell Miller.

SPECIALISTS Kansas State will look to fill a few holes on special teams this season with the departure of All-Big 12 place-kicker Brooks Rossman, but Kansas State should have no issues in maintaining its national dominance in the area of special teams. Three very capable candidates will compete for the Wildcats’ place-kicking duties this season. Junior Josh Cherry has the most experience of the candidates, but redshirt freshman Ryan Doerr and redshirt freshman Brandon Klimek will both look to challenge for the starting job. Junior punter D.J. Fulhage returns after finishing last season with an average punt of 38.1 yards, which ranked him seventh in the Big 12. Doerr, a transfer from South Carolina, could also figure into the punting role. Junior Corey Adams returns as K-State’s long-snapper after establishing himself as one of the nation’s best at the position. In the return game, K-State will return one of the most electrifying kick-returners in the conference last season in senior wide receiver Brandon Banks. Last season, Banks averaged 27.7 yards per kick return which ranked him second in the Big 12 in the category. Also look for Banks to take over the punt return duties as the lightning fast receiver can surely provide a spark for the Wildcats in that position as well.

Three-Time National Coach of the Year ill Snyder, the architect of the “greatest turnaround in the history of college football” will begin his second tour of duty as the leader of the Wildcat Football family in 2009. Snyder retired in November of 2005 after 17 ultra-successful seasons as the head coach at Kansas State and now returns to the sideline again to lead the Wildcat program. Named the 32nd head football coach at Kansas State on Nov. 30, 1988, Snyder amassed a 136-68-1 (.666) record during his first tenure with the Wildcats, including a 75-531 (.585) mark in Big 8/12 games. His 136 victories are the 17th most among active FBS coaches and are more than triple the man in second place on K-State’s all-time coaching victories list (Mike Ahearn, 39 wins). But to fully understand the turnaround ushered in by Snyder at K-State one must only consider that the Wildcats were in the midst of an 0-26-1 run when he was hired. It also took K-State 51 seasons (1938-1988) to total just 130 wins, while the 12 head coaches prior to Snyder's arrival in Manhattan combined to win just 116 games from 1945-1988. Snyder led Kansas State to 11 straight bowl berths between the 1993 and 2003 seasons, making K-State one of only seven programs in the nation to appear in the postseason every year during that stretch. During that span, Snyder’s Wildcats won nearly 80 percent of their games, chalking up 109 victories - a staggering average of nearly 10 wins per season - and making Kansas State the nation’s second-winningest program over that period.

And Snyder continued to break new ground with the Wildcats. Kansas State’s 35-7 victory over top-ranked Oklahoma in the 2003 Big 12 Championship game lifted K-State to its first conference championship since Pappy Waldorf’s 1934 squad and secured the school’s first BCS bowl berth in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. With an 11-4 record in 2003, K-State was the only team in the country to win 11 games in six of the previous seven years and just the second program in the history of college football to win 11 games six times in a seven-year stretch. Snyder’s unprecedented success in 17 years at K- State did not go unnoticed. He was named the National Coach of the Year three times (1991, 1994 and 1998). He has been a finalist for the prestigious Bear Bryant/FWAA National Coach of the Year Award in 1993 and 1995 before winning in 1998; a finalist for the Football News National Coach of the Year Award in 1995 and 1998; and a finalist for the Kodak/AFCA National Coach of the Year Award in 1993 and 1998. In 1993, he joined legendary Nebraska head coach Bob Devaney as the only head coaches in Big Eight history to be named Associated Press Big Eight Coach of the Year three times in a four-year period (1990, 1991 and 1993). The Houston Chronicle named him the 1996 Big 12 Coach of the Year, while he earned 1997 and 1998 Big 12 Coach of the Year honors from the Kansas City Star. Snyder also was the 1998 Big 12 Coach of the Year by the AP and by a vote of league coaches before earning the league coaches’ support

again in 2002. The 2003 season brought more honors, including Big 12 Coach of the Year accolades from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and ESPN.com. Since the inception of the Big 12 Conference, Snyder’s Wildcats truly became a dominant force in the league, ranking in the top three in overall Big 12 wins during his tenure. Kansas State also won more Big 12 road games than any team in the league and advanced to the conference championship game three times. Those facts alone demonstrate the continuing evolution of a power in the Big 12 and with it the recognition that Snyder is truly one of the finest coaches in college football today. The list of accomplishments Snyder has amassed in his 17-plus years is as endless as the time most people thought it would take for the Wildcats to be a consistent threat in the Big Eight, and now, Big 12 Conference. Like so many in recent history, the 2003 campaign was a dramatically successful one for Kansas State, which ended the regular season with seven straight wins, a fourth Big 12 North Division title, its first Big 12 Conference championship and yet another top-20 finish. But the 2003 season was not without its bumps in the road as the Wildcats overcame their share of adversity to produce perhaps the greatest season in school history. Ranked as high as No. 6 nationally in the early going, a key injury to quarterback Ell Roberson precipitated a three-game slide that threatened to wipe out a promising season. The three losses all but erased K-State from the national consciousness, as the Wildcats slipped out of both polls for the first time since the second game of the 2002 season. But Snyder was not about to allow the year to spiral out of control. He constantly reminded his players that they still controlled their own destiny, and if they could just go 1-0 each week the season would take care of itself and the team would ultimately achieve its goals. And like everything Snyder seems to touch, this strategy too worked, as the Wildcats rode their 1-0 mantra week after week all the way to a berth in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Along the way, five different Wildcats were lauded for their efforts with All-America honors, including K-State’s first Associated Press first team All-American running back, Darren Sproles, who finished fifth in voting for the Heisman Trophy, was the Doak Walker Award runner-up and finished third on the AP’s Player of the Year ballot. But Sproles was the lone player with star power that returned for the 2004 campaign. And though the little tank produced yet another record-breaking season capped by his third-straight selection to an All-Big 12 team, the lack of experience was one reason K-State struggled through a 4-7 rebuilding campaign. The 2002 season was one of the best in Kansas State history, witnessed by the Wildcats’ five-victory turnaround from the previous year’s 6-6 team to a win in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl and an 11-2 overall record. In addition, the 2002 Wildcats set or tied 45 school records, including tying the mark for wins in a season. Snyder’s Wildcats finished the season with six consecutive victories, including the biggest wins in the history of the series in each of a three-week span against Kansas, Iowa State and Nebraska. The Wildcats’ dominant play down the stretch of the 2002 season earned Snyder the recognition of his peers as the Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year.

In 2001, Snyder directed one of the best in-season turnarounds in school history. Despite losing four straight in the middle of the year and facing the fourth-toughest schedule in the nation, the Wildcats recovered to win four of their last five games to end the regular season with a 6-5 record and a berth in the Insight.com Bowl. Despite the record, the quality of players produced by the Snyder-led coaching staff continued to attract national attention from those who best know the game. Six Kansas State players were selected in the 2002 NFL Draft, the most of any team in the Big 12, with only six schools in the country having more players picked in the draft. The Wildcats started the 2000 season ranked in the Top 10 for just the second time in school history and made a fourweek run into the Top 5 that saw K-State climb as high as No. 2 in the nation. K-State won the Big 12 North Division for the second time in three years and earned at least a share of the title for the third consecutive season. K-State had six players named first team All-Big 12 by the league’s coaches, and PK Jamie Rheem, DT Mario Fatafehi and WR Quincy Morgan earned All-America honors. The 1999 season saw the Wildcats climb from No. 20 in the preseason poll to finish at No. 6, after starting the season with nine straight victories, and win 11 games for the third straight year. K-State tied Nebraska for the Wildcats’ second consecutive Big 12 North Division Championship. All this came in what many thought would be a rebuilding season. K-State led the conference in first team all-conference picks with seven.

In 1998, Snyder led K-State to its second straight 11-win season and a No. 4 ranking in the final regular season polls. In November, K-State occupied a No. 1 ranking in a national poll for the first time in school history. The Wildcats won the Big 12 Conference North Division and advanced to a bowl game for the sixth year in a row. K-State won its first 11 games of the season and ran its winning streak to a schoolrecord 20 games before falling to Texas A&M in the Big 12 Championship game. Quarterback Michael Bishop became the first Wildcat to be a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, and a total of six KStaters earned All-America honors. Snyder earned National Coach of the Year honors from the Walter Camp Foundation, the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation, the Associated Press, the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award and the Schutt Sports Group. In 1997, Snyder led the Wildcats to their first 11-win season in school history, a No. 7 final ranking and the first 10win regular season since 1910. It was just the third 10-win season in 102 years of K-State football. Kansas State won a school-record seven conference games, finishing second in the North Division to undefeated and national champion Nebraska. The Wildcats defeated South Division champion Texas A&M, 36-17. The season ended with a 35-18 win over Big East Conference champion Syracuse in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, with an estimated 50,000 K-State fans attending KState’s first-ever Alliance Bowl.

The 1996 season saw K-State finish with a 9-3 record, while more than 45,000 Wildcat fans painted Dallas purple for the Southwestern Bell Cotton Bowl, Kansas State’s firstever New Year’s Day Bowl. Despite a 19-15 loss to No. 5 BYU, the support and respect for the K-State program grew to unprecedented heights. In 1995, Snyder guided K-State to a 10-2 record, including a 5-2 Big Eight mark to tie for second place behind national champion Nebraska. Following a 54-21 blitzing of WAC champion Colorado State in the 1995 Holiday Bowl, the Wildcats finished the season ranked sixth in the USA Today/CNN coaches poll and seventh in the Associated Press poll. Both rankings were the highest ever attained by a Kansas State football team to that point. In 1995, the Wildcats finished tied for second in the Big Eight and their 5-2 league mark gave K-State two consecutive 5-2 Big Eight seasons. In the last three years of the Big Eight, the Wildcats defeated or tied every team in the league except Nebraska. Since the inception of the Big 12 in 1996, K-State is 53-27 in league games under Snyder (10 seasons). In 1993, Snyder guided K-State to its first bowl win in school history and, in 1994, the Wildcats cracked the Top 10 for the first time in school history. In 1998, the K-State achieved a No. 1 national ranking in one of the major polls for the first time in the program’s history. Individually, Snyder produced 45 different All-Americans during his 17 years as head coach, including nine consensus first-team All-Americans: in 1992 (P Sean Snyder), 1993 (FS Jaime Mendez), 1995 (CB Chris Canty), 1996 (Canty), 1997 (PK Martin Gramatica), 1998 (PR David Allen), 1999 (LB Mark Simoneau) and 2002 (CB Terence Newman). Newman became the third Wildcat to win a national award when he was voted the 2002 Thorpe Award, given to the top collegiate defensive back. Gramatica was the 1997 Lou Groza 56 KANSAS STATE FOOTBALL

Award winner, the first major award winner in Kansas State history. Quarterback Michael Bishop became the first K-State player to be named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy (finishing as runner-up) while winning the Davey O’Brien Award. The foundation for K-State’s turnaround was laid in 1989 during Snyder’s first season in Manhattan. Although the season yielded just a 1-10 record, it became evident to everyone involved in the program that something special was happening. Most important, Snyder instilled a winning attitude and a healthy dose of self-respect and enthusiasm to a program that had been given up for dead. In 1990, Kansas State was one of just four teams in the country to improve its record by four games with a 5-6 mark, including its first Big Eight Conference wins in four seasons with victories over Oklahoma State and Iowa State. Snyder again beat those two schools in 1991, while adding Kansas and Missouri to the list of his Big Eight victims to finish at 74 for K-State’s first winning season since the Independence Bowl season of 1982. Heavy graduation losses on the offensive side of the ball resulted in a 5-6 mark in 1992, but the Wildcats were still able to hang their hats on their first perfect home season (50) since 1934. Of course, it should come as no surprise that Snyder would be this kind of architect for a building program. At Iowa, he played a key role in the renaissance of a Hawkeye program that went from 17 consecutive losing seasons to eight straight bowl appearances. Snyder was the mind behind Iowa’s potent offensive attack. The Hawkeye offense ranked first in passing efficiency and third in passing yardage nationally in Snyder’s last five years of direction. In his final Iowa season, the Peach Bowl team led the Big Ten, and ranked seventh nationally, with 277 passing yards per game. That team was second in the Big Ten with 416 yards of offense per game. Snyder also served as quarterback coach at Iowa and helped develop some of the best quarterbacks in NCAA history, including NFL players Chuck Long (second in Heisman voting

with over 10,000 passing yards in Iowa career), Mark Vlasic and Chuck Hartlieb, who wrapped up his career as the first Hawkeye to throw for 3,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Snyder began his full-time coaching career in 1964 as an assistant at Indio High School in California. In 1966 he served as a graduate assistant at USC under John McKay before returning to become head coach at Indio High School in 1967. He accepted the same position at Santa Ana Foothill High School in 1969, where he stayed until 1973. In 1974, Snyder became the offensive coordinator on the football staff and head swimming coach at Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He joined the University of North Texas staff in 1976 and helped author an impressive turnaround with a three-year record of 26-7. He left UNT for Iowa in 1979. Over the last three years, Snyder, who was honored as a Big 12 Legend in 2008, remained involved with the university and is currently a member of the Missouri and Kansas Halls of Fame, the Kansas State Athletics and Austin College Sports Halls of Fame while also being inducted into the Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame. The long-time mentor is also still active in the community as he currently is the Chairman of the Kansas Mentors Council and the Kansas Leadership Council, a member of the Board of Directors for Kansas Leadership Center, the Board of Trustees for the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, the KSU Leadership Studies Advancement Council, the Terry C. Johnson Cancer Research Center Advisory Council, the Manhattan Community Foundation Board of Trustees, the KSU Foundation Board of Trustees and is the Honorary Co-Chairman of the Kansas Masonic Partnership for Life. Snyder, who will turn 70 on October 7, 2009, received his B.A. from William Jewell in 1963. He earned his M.A. from Eastern New Mexico in 1965. As a player, he was a three-year letterwinner as a defensive back at William Jewell. Snyder and his wife, Sharon, have two sons (Sean and Ross) and three daughters (Shannon, Meredith and Whitney). They also have eight grandchildren, Sydney, Katherine, Tate, Matthew, Alexis, Gavin, Kadin and Tylin.

CHRIS COSH Assistant HC/Co-Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers Chris Cosh, who has spent the last three seasons at Maryland leading the Terrapin defense, enters his first season as Assistant Head Coach and Co-Defensive Coordinator for the Wildcats. Cosh, who will have now served as a defensive coordinator in four of the six BCS conferences, will also oversee the linebacker position at K-State, a position he held under Snyder in 2004 and 2005. Cosh spent the last three seasons at Maryland as the defensive coordinator, helping the Terrapins advance to three bowl games. This past season, the Terrapins (7-5) ended the regular season 35th nationally in scoring defense (21.4 points per game) and were led by All-ACC performers Alex Wujciak at linebacker and Jeremy Navarre on the defensive line. In 2007, the Terrapin defense was highlighted by first-team All-ACC performers Erin Henderson and Dre Moore. Henderson led the league in tackles from his weakside linebacker spot, while Moore, a defensive tackle, went on to become a fourthround draft choice of Tampa Bay in the 2008 NFL Draft. In addition, linebacker Dave Philistin was fourth in the ACC in tackles and defensive lineman Carlos Feliciano and defensive back Isaiah Gardner were also signed as free agents after the draft. Cosh's defense ended the year at No. 24 nationally in scoring defense (21.5 points per game) and No. 33 in pass defense (210.69 yards per game). The group posted eight more sacks and five more interceptions than the previous year. In 2006, Cosh was responsible for a unit that contributed to the school's first nine-win season in three years, and finished the year with a 24-7 victory over Purdue in the Champs Sports Bowl. The Terps defense held the opposition to an average of 21.8 points per game. Under Cosh's leadership, the defense marked breakout performances by cornerback Josh Wilson and Henderson, who each earned All-ACC honors. Wilson went on to become a second-round choice of the Seattle Seahawks in the 2007 NFL Draft, while DL Conrad Boston (Minnesota Vikings) and LB David Holloway (Arizona Cardinals) signed free-agent contracts. Prior to his stint at Maryland, Cosh spent the 2004-05 seasons under Snyder as linebackers coach at Kansas State. The Wildcat defense ranked 30th nationally in 2005 allowing an average of 128.9 rushing yards per game. Junior linebacker Brandon Archer was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection in 2005, an accolade which came a year after Cosh helped coach the newcomer to second-team honors in his first year as a starter. In the five years prior to his first stop in Manhattan, Cosh served under Lou Holtz as linebackers coach (1999-2002) and defensive coordinator (2003) at South Carolina. In his tenure at USC, he helped produce some of the Southeastern Conference's top linebackers with Kalimba Edwards (two-time first team all-league, Butkus and Lombardi Awards finalist in 2001) among them. His resume as a position coach also includes tutoring New York Jets first-round pick John Abraham (1999) and freshman All-American Lance Laury (2002).

During his time in Columbia, S.C., the Gamecocks won back-to-back bowl games for the first time in school history. In addition to serving under coaching legends Snyder and Holtz (whom he also worked under as a graduate assistant at Virginia Tech), Cosh was the defensive coordinator at Michigan State under former Miami Dolphins and current Alabama head coach Nick Saban, one of the top defensive minds in football. In his lone season (1998) in East Lansing, Mich., the Spartans upset No. 1 Ohio State and knocked off Notre Dame. Cosh's unit helped spark those wins with the 10th-ranked pass defense in the nation. During his first tour of duty at Maryland in 1997, Cosh coached the linebackers while also heading up the team's recruiting efforts. In that one year with the Terps, linebackers Eric Barton and Kendal Ogle finished second and third in the ACC in tackles. The greatest testament to his skill as a coach of linebackers may have come in his previous job at Illinois (defensive coordinator from 1992-96) when he led Dana Howard (1994) and Kevin Hardy (1995) to consecutive Butkus Awards. Howard posted a Big Ten record in tackles in 1994. He also oversaw a defense which saw DE Simeon Rice earn consensus All-America honors before being drafted by the Arizona Cardinals. Fellow LB John Holecek also went on to a career in the NFL. A former linebacker who earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from Virginia Tech in 1983, Cosh also got his start in coaching in Blacksburg, Va., where he was a student assistant during the 1983 season. He then made five different stops (Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Southeast Missouri State, UNLV and two tours at Minnesota) before settling in at Illinois. In all but one of those full-time jobs he worked either as defensive coordinator or linebackers coach. Cosh and his wife, Mary, have two sons, J.J., who is a member of the football team at the United States Naval Academy, and Billy, a senior in high school. Cosh is a native of Washington, D.C., and graduated from Bishop McNamara High School in Forestville, Md. He was chosen Metro Defensive Player of the Year while serving as captain at Bishop McNamara before moving onto Virginia Tech where he led the Hokies in tackles in 1980.

VIC KOENNING Assistant HC/Co-Defensive Coordinator/Secondary One of the nation’s top defensive coaches has joined the Kansas State football staff as former Clemson defensive coordinator and K-State captain Vic Koenning enters his first season as the Wildcats' assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator. A member of the Wildcats’ 1982 squad that played in the school’s first-ever bowl game, Koenning will also coach the Wildcat secondary in his new position. Koenning accomplished something no other Clemson defensive coordinator had accomplished in Tiger football history during his four-year tenure as each of his four defenses from 2005-2008 finished in the top 25 in scoring, total, and pass efficiency defense each season. This past season, Clemson's defense led the ACC in scoring defense and ranked ninth in the nation by allowing just 16.6 points per game. The unit was also 12th in the nation in pass defense, 11th in pass efficiency defense, tied for eighth in interceptions and 16th in total defense. Koenning, a 1983 Kansas State graduate, had productive defenses at Clemson that took advantage of the talents of players from different positions. His first defense in 2005 featured first-round draft pick Tye Hill, a cornerback now with the St. Louis Rams, while his 2006 defense featured defensive end Gaines Adams, the No. 4 selection of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His 2007 unit featured another defensive end in Phillip Merling, who was the No. 32 overall selection of the 2008 draft by Miami. With nine underclassmen in the starting lineup for most of the season, the 2007 defensive performance might have been the best of his tenure at Clemson. Clemson had just one player make First or Second-Team All-ACC, yet the Tigers led the ACC in pass defense and turnover margin, and they finished second in total defense and scoring defense. Clemson was ninth in the nation in total defense, allowing just 307 yards per game, and 10th in scoring defense, giving up 18.7 points per outing. In 2006, Clemson finished 13th in the nation in total defense, its highest mark since the 1991 team finished fourth. Clemson was 18th in rushing defense, 24th in pass defense (yards), 17th in pass efficiency defense, 20th in sacks, and 16th in scoring defense. It marked the first time since 1990 (that team led the nation in total defense) that Clemson finished in the top 20 in the four major defensive categories in the same year. A highlight in 2006 took place during Clemson's 31-7 win over No. 13 Georgia Tech as the Tiger secondary held Georgia Tech All-American and No. 2 overall draft pick Calvin Johnson without a reception for the only time in his collegiate career. The Tigers showed great improvement over the course of the 2005 season, his first at Clemson. The defense allowed 11.5 points per game in the last seven games, a big reason the Tigers went 6-1 in those contests. During that stretch, the defense held No. 16 Florida State (coached by Bobby Bowden) and No. 19 South Carolina (coached by Steve Spurrier) without an offensive touchdown. He became the first defensive coordinator to keep those two noted offensive minds without a touchdown in the same season. The 2005 season concluded with a 19-10 win over Colorado in the Champs Sports Bowl. The Tigers held the Buffaloes to 124 yards of total offense and just 17 rushing yards, the

best bowl game defensive performance of the 56 Division I-A teams in the postseason. Clemson allowed just one touchdown in its last 45 defensive possessions that season. Koenning came to Clemson prior to the 2005 season with a strong résumé. He led Troy's defense to a top-10 national finish in scoring defense, rushing defense, yards per play, and pass efficiency defense in 2004. Troy's defense led the nation in interceptions (25), tied for second in turnovers forced (32), was ninth in fewest yards per play allowed, and 16th in total defense (311.0). Only Southern Cal had more takeaways than Troy. He spent two seasons at Troy as the defensive coordinator under Head Coach Larry Blakeney. Prior to that, he was the head coach at Wyoming from 2000-02. He coached 10 Cowboy players who earned first-team all-conference honors in his five seasons in Laramie, including three years as head coach and two years as defensive coordinator. Koenning served as a full-time assistant coach working with the defensive backs at Memphis from 1991-96. In his first year, he helped the Tigers to a 24-10 upset at No. 14 Southern California. His second season there saw the defense finish third in the nation in total defense and 15th in scoring defense. The Tigers enjoyed another successful year on defense in 1993, as Koenning's unit was 16th in the nation in total defense. In 1994, the Tigers were third in the nation in total defense and eighth in scoring defense. His final year at Memphis was highlighted by a 21-17 upset of No. 6 Tennessee.

DANA DIMEL Co-Offensive Coordinator/Running Backs Dana Dimel, a 1986 Kansas State graduate, will coach the Wildcat running backs and serve a co-offensive coordinator for head coach Bill Snyder in 2009. The hire marks Dimel's third tour of duty with the Wildcats as he heads back to Manhattan after serving three seasons on Mike Stoops’ staff at Arizona. Dimel joined Stoops' staff in early 2006 to coach tight ends and then took on bigger responsibilities calling plays as the running game coordinator and H-backs coach. A year ago he worked primarily with tight ends and this past spring he became running backs coach as well as the associate head coach. Arizona finished 8-5 last season, which included its first bowl win in 10 years after a 31-21 triumph over No. 17 BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl. The Wildcats’ top scoring threat in 2008 was Rob Gronkowski, a tight end tutored by Dimel. Gronkowski, despite missing the first three games of the season due to illness, was a unanimous First Team All-PAC-10 selection and a third-team all-American at tight end after collecting 47 receptions for 672 yards and 10 touchdowns. During Dimel’s tenure in Tucson, Arizona boasted the first 1,000-yard and 500-yard rushers in the same backfield in school history with Nic Grigsby and Keola Antolin. A K-State alumnus who lettered for the Wildcats in 1985 and 1986 as an offensive lineman, Dimel spent 10 years on the K-State staff from 1987 to 1996. Kansas State's offensive line coach for much of his tenure, Dimel also served as offensive coordinator during the 1995 and 1996 campaigns. In 1995, his first at the controls of the Wildcat offense, Kansas State set school records for both

touchdowns and total points as well as total offense. During Dimel's coaching tenure at K-State, he mentored 11 offensive linemen who went on to sign NFL contracts. He was also instrumental in developing All-Americans Barrett Brooks, Jim Hmielewski and Quentin Neujahr along with allconference picks Jason Johnson, Todd Weiner and Ryan Young. In 1997, Dimel became the youngest head coach in NCAA Division I when he was named head coach at the University of Wyoming at the age of 34. Dimel spent three years at Wyoming, guiding the Cowboys to an impressive 23-12 overall record, and left Laramie as one of only 10 head coaches at the time to win no fewer than seven games in every year as a head coach. Considered one of the nation's most successful young head coaches at the time, Dimel led the Cowboys to eight-win seasons in both 1998 and 1999, while his Cowboy teams were undefeated against BYU, Utah and TCU. Dimel was then named head coach at the University of Houston, where he guided the Cougars' football program from 2000-2002. While at Houston, his 2001 and 2002 recruiting classes were rated No. 1 in Conference USA by Rivals.com. In his final season in Houston, Dimel’s team finished 5-7, including a win in the final game over conference champion Louisville. Joffrey Reynolds also set the Conference USA rushing mark in Dimel’s final season with 1,545 yards. During his tenure as a head and assistant coach, Dimel has coached 34 players who have gone on to the NFL. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Dimel and his wife, Julie, have a son, Winston, and a daughter, Josie.

DEL MILLER Co-Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Del Miller, who has worked with some of the most prolific offenses in K-State history, will be making his fourth stop in Manhattan in 2009 after serving the 2006-08 seasons as the offensive coordinator at San Diego State and will enter his 13th season overall at Kansas State in 2009. Miller will serve as the Wildcats' co-offensive coordinator while also tutoring the quarterbacks. Last season, the Aztecs were led by two redshirt freshmen in quarterback Ryan Lindley and wide receiver Vincent Brown. Lindley threw for 2,653 yards and ranked 40th nationally in total offense, while Brown, an All-Mountain West selection by Phil Steele, ranked 44th nationally with 5.33 receptions per game and hauled in 64 catches for 631 yards and five touchdowns in 2008. In 2007, the Aztecs ranked 28th nationally in passing offense, throwing for over 3,000 yards, while SDSU also led the Mountain West Conference in red zone offense, scoring nearly 90-percent of the time. Quarterback Kevin O’Connell became the first Aztec to lead the team in both rushing (408 yards) and passing (3,063 yards), ranking in the top 30 nationally in passing average and total offense. He was one of three Aztec offensive players selected in the 2008 NFL Draft as he was taken in the third round by New England. One of the first hires made by Snyder when he first came to K-State in 1989, Miller returned to Manhattan in 2001 as offensive coordinator for his third stint on the staff after serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Oklahoma State for the 2000 season. Miller has played a major role in the building of two major college programs, first at Iowa under the legendary Hayden Fry from 1978-88 before becoming a member of Snyder’s original Kansas State coaching staff. He has coached in 14 bowl games in his 30 years as a Division I assistant, including six at Kansas State. He has been a part of 12 seasons of eight or more wins at Iowa and K-State, including five seasons of 10 or more victories. Miller returned to Kansas State in 1999 to serve as a graduate assistant, helping the Wildcats to a third consecutive 11-win season and a Big 12 North Division co-Championship. After a year at Oklahoma State, he returned to Manhattan in 2001 to serve as the assistant director of football operations before being elevated to defensive ends coach in 2002. In his lone season as a defensive assistant, Miller helped Andrew Shull break onto the single-season top 10 list for sacks and Melvin Williams become a fifth-round selection of New Orleans in the 2003 NFL Draft. Miller began his second stint as the school’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2003. He helped the Wildcats rank ninth nationally in both scoring and rushing offense and 17th in total offense en route to cap-

turing their first conference championship in nearly 70 years. The offense was one of just seven in the country to average over 200 yards per game in both rushing and passing. Miller was instrumental in developing quarterback Ell Roberson, who at one time was the school’s all-time leader in total offense and passing touchdowns. With the opportunity to run his own program, Miller left Kansas State in 1995 to take over as head coach at Southwest Missouri State. He guided the Bears to a 21-23 record in four seasons, including their first winning mark in three years in 1996 at 7-4. Miller followed Snyder to Kansas State in 1989, serving as the program’s offensive coordinator as well as quarterbacks and wide receivers coach. After two seasons, he was elevated to assistant head coach/recruiting coordinator for the 1991 season. Later that year, Miller helped the Wildcats post their first winning season in nine years at 7-4. K-State would go on to break the school record for wins in 1993 and 1994 with nine plus advance to back-to-back bowl games for the first time in school history. Miller coached six all-conference players from 1989 to 1994, including two-time all-league picks Chad May and Michael Smith. Miller began his coaching career at the high school level in 1972 when he became head coach at Plainfield High School in Plainfield, Iowa. In 1975, he left to become the defensive coordinator at Eagle Grove High School in Eagle Grove, Iowa. He then served as head coach at Eagle Grove from 1977-78. A native of Marengo, Iowa, Miller played and graduated from Central College in Pella, Iowa. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1972 and received his master’s degree in physical education in 1976. Miller is married to the former Jan Schafbuch. The couple has three sons, Todd, Tad and Troy.

JOE BOB CLEMENTS Assistant Coach/Defensive Ends Kansas native and former Wildcat Joe Bob Clements returns to Kansas State as an assistant coach responsible for directing the Wildcat defensive ends under new head coach Bill Snyder.

Prior to his stint in Lawrence, Clements was an assistant coach (defensive line) at San Diego State in 2006 and 2007, which included a role as the Aztec’s recruiting coordinator in 2007. But, Clements will now return to his alma mater where he was a part of 10 bowl games as both a player and coach and served a total of seven seasons on Snyder’s staff, the final three as an assistant coach in charge of the defensive ends

from 2003-05. He also served as the Wildcats’ recruiting coordinator in 2004 and 2005. In his first year mentoring Kansas State’s defensive ends in 2003, Clements’ unit helped the Wildcats lead the nation in sacks in 2003. The unit was also integral in helping K-State finish the year sixth in the nation in total defense, eighth in scoring defense, 12th in pass efficiency defense and 17th in rushing defense. It marked the second straight season that the Wildcats finished in top 10 nationally in both total and scoring defense, and the seventh consecutive year that K-State ranked in the top six in total defense. While at K-State, Clements coached one of the most prolific defensive ends in school history, Andrew Shull, who ranks among the top 10 in three sack categories in school history and was a second team All-Big 12 selection in 2003.

CHARLIE DICKEY Assistant Coach/Offensive Line Charlie Dickey, who just capped his fourth season at Utah with an undefeated 13-0 season and a win over No. 4 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, enters his first season as an assistant coach in charge of the Wildcat offensive line. Dickey was instrumental in the Utes’ success on offense since he took charge of Utah's offensive line in 2005 and his position has been regarded as a Ute stronghold since. In 2006, the Utes were the last team in the country to allow a sack going six games before anyone got to their quarterback. This past season, offensive tackle Zane Beadles and guard Robert Conley were First Team All-Mountain West Conference selections under Dickey and protected and paved the way for quarterback Brian Johnson, the 2008 MWC Offensive Player of the Year and Sugar Bowl Most Outstanding Player. During his time at Utah, Dickey coached four first-team all-conference players in center Jesse Boone (2005), tackles Tavo Tupola (2006) and Beadles (2008) and guard Conley (2008). In 2007, Beadles and Conley won second team honors. Dickey coached in the Pac-10 for 13 years before heading to Utah, spending 12 years at his alma mater, Arizona, and one season at Washington. At Arizona, he coached the offensive line from 1992-2002 and the tight ends in 2003. In 2004, Dickey went to Washington as the Huskies' offensive line coach.

While at Arizona, Dickey developed first-team all-conference linemen Warner Smith (1994) and Yusuf Scott (1998). Scott won the 1998 Morris Trophy award, which goes to the league's outstanding offensive lineman. Dickey began his coaching career after playing one season for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 1987 NFL strike. In 1988, he worked at Arizona as a graduate assistant coach before tutoring the offensive line at Scottsdale Community College in 1989 and at Northern Arizona from 1990-91. In his playing days, Dickey started at offensive guard at Arizona from 1983-84 - compiling a streak of 1,230 consecutive offensive plays (including all 840 offensive plays of the 1983 season). He was named second-team all-Pac-10 in 1984 and was Arizona's Offensive Most Valuable Player. Before going to Arizona, he completed an all-conference junior college career at Scottsdale Community College. Dickey, who earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Arizona in 1987, is married to the former Lisa Bradshaw, a native of Jetmore, Kan., and a member of the Arizona women's basketball team from 1983-85. The couple has five children: daughters Jazmin, Tasha and Shyanne, and son Charles Jr. A daughter, Chanel, passed away at the age of three.

MO LATIMORE Assistant Coach/Interior Defensive Line A former All-American lineman for the Wildcats in the 1970s, Mo Latimore is the longest tenured assistant coach in the Big 12 Conference and will enter his 26th season at Kansas State in 2009 as the team's interior defensive line coach. Latimore has been a fixture at Kansas State since returning to his alma mater in 1994 following a five-year stint at Missouri. He has played an integral role in Kansas State’s ascent to one of the nation’s elite programs, helping the Wildcats to nine seasons of nine or more wins and 11 bowl games. He has also been a big reason for K-State’s strong presence on defense and has mentored lines that helped the Wildcats rank among the nation’s top 10 in total defense several times, including top-5 rankings in 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002. During the last 15 seasons, Latimore has helped coach four All-Americans, including first-team honorees Tim Colston (1995) and Mario Fatafehi (2000), two conference Defensive Newcomers of the Year (Fatafehi in 1999 and Tank Reese in 2001) and one conference Defensive Player of the Year (Colston; 1995). This past season, three Wildcat defenders earned all-conference honors as Ian Campbell, Eric Childs and Brandon Harold all had solid seasons. Campbell earned his third straight all-conference award and left Kansas State as one of the program’s best defensive ends. Harold was one of the top freshmen defenders in the country in 2008 and led the nation in sacks and tackles for loss among freshmen defensive linemen. In 2005, protégé Alphonso Moran received Big 12 all-freshman honors as well as honorable mention freshman All-America accolades from The Sporting News and in 2006 Campbell was selected as a consensus first team All-Big 12 performer as well as the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year by the Houston Chronicle. Campbell again added first team honors in 2007, while defensive end Rob Jackson also garnered all-league accolades this past season. Campbell’s selection to the All-Big-12 first team continued one of the league’s most successful trends that has seen Latimore produce 18 all-conference players over the last 15 seasons, including eight first-team selections. In his first season back at his alma mater, Latimore helped guide the Wildcats to the nation’s top ranking in total defense, while also coaching Colston to third team All-America honors from The Associated Press. In 1995, Latimore helped Colston become the first defensive lineman in school history to earn first team All-America accolades and Big Eight Defensive Player of the Year honors. Beginning in 1997, Latimore coached at least one all-conference linemen for six consecutive seasons, including three firstteam honorees. Fatafehi became the first of two Latimore protégés to earn Big 12 Newcomer of the Year honors in 1999. In 2000, he coached a defensive line that saw three of its four starters (Monty Beisel, Chris Johnson and Fatafehi) earn AllBig 12 honors, while Fatafehi became Latimore’s second first team All-American in six seasons. Also, the line recorded 39 sacks and helped the Cats finish fourth nationally in total defense.

64 KANSAS STATE FOOTBALL

Latimore saw his second player, Tank Reese, earn Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year honors in 2001, as well as first team all-league recognition in both 2001 and 2002. In 2002, Latimore’s defensive line anchored a unit that set a school record for rushing defense, allowing only 69.5 yards per game, and led the nation in scoring defense. His 2003 unit helped lead the nation in sacks with 51 as the team finished sixth in the nation in total defense and eighth in scoring defense. The 2006 campaign brought even more success as Latimore’s unit was at the forefront of a defense that led the Big 12 in sacks and ranked sixth nationally with 40, including a schoolrecord 11.5 by Campbell. The 2007 line ranked second in the Big 12 in sacks, again led by Campbell. Latimore began his coaching career at K-State in 1976 under Ellis Rainsberger as a graduate assistant. After 10 years in various roles on the Kansas State staff, Latimore moved to Texas-El Paso in 1986 under Coach Bob Stull, where he coached the defensive line for three seasons. He helped the Miners to the school’s first 10-win season in 1988, which cumulated in the school’s first bowl game in 21 years - the 1988 Independence Bowl. In 1989, Latimore moved with coach Bob Stull to Missouri, where he coached until 1993. One of the top lineman in K-State history, Latimore earned third team All-America honors and first team All-Big Eight accolades while also serving as team captain in 1971. He played in the 1971 Senior Bowl and North-South Bowl before being drafted in the seventh round by the New York Jets. He went on to play four years in the CFL with Calgary, Saskatchewan and Hamilton. A native of Byron, Ga., Latimore, earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1976. He is married to the former D’Anne Mitchell. The couple has two children, M.L. and Mallory.

RICKY RAHNE Assistant Coach/Tight Ends Ricky Rahne, who will coach the Wildcat tight ends in 2009, joined the Kansas State football program’s full-time staff on January 29, 2007, and is in his fourth season overall with the Wildcats, including spending the last two as running backs coach. In his first season directing the Wildcat running backs, Rahne helped tutor All-Big 12 selection and current Cincinnati Bengal James Johnson, who became the fastest Wildcat to rush for 1,000 yards in a season in 2007. The Wildcat rushing attack averaged 4.5 yards a carry in 2007, including a 6.4-yard average by Johnson. Rahne served as the program’s offensive graduate assistant during the 2006 season and worked closely with all aspects of the Kansas State offense, and specifically the development of record-setting quarterback Josh Freeman, prior to his promotion. Before joining Prince’s staff at K-State, Rahne spent the 2005 season as the running backs coach at Cornell, where he mentored first team All-Ivy League selection Luke Siwula. During 2005, Siwula had six 100-yard rushing games. He ended the year with 1,086 yards on the ground for the 10th-best single-season rushing total in Cornell history. During the 2004 campaign, Rahne was a member of the coaching staff at Holy Cross, where he served as an assis-

tant defensive line coach. In his only season with the Crusaders, Rahne worked extensively with the program’s defensive ends. He was also responsible for all video breakdowns of opponents’ defense and special teams and assisted the defensive coordinator in developing game plans while coordinating scout teams. A native of Morrison, Colo., and a 2002 Cornell graduate with a bachelor’s degree in industrial and labor relations, Rahne served as an intern in the National Football League office during the summer before his senior year. Prior to his stint at Holy Cross, Rahne worked at the Cintas Corporation as a part of the company’s management trainee program. On the field, Rahne finished his career as Cornell’s alltime leader in nearly every passing category and earned the team’s MVP honors three times. A three-year starter, he remains the program’s career leader in completions (678), yards (7,710), touchdown passes (54) and 200-yard passing games (25).

MICHAEL SMITH Assistant Coach/Wide Receivers Former Wildcat wide receiver and assistant coach Michael Smith has returned to his alma mater and will tutor the K-State wide receivers in 2009. Smith, who spent the first 11 years of his coaching career at Kansas State, was the running backs coach at Rice in 2006 before moving to Arizona for the 2007 (running backs) and 2008 (inside receivers) seasons. At Rice, he helped the Owls to a 7-6 record, advancing to their first bowl game in 45 seasons and coached senior Quinton Smith to 1,096 yards in 2006, only the sixth Owls' running back in history to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark. Smith helped lead the Arizona Wildcats to a 2008 Las Vegas Bowl win over BYU while he tutored Mike Thomas, who became the Pac-10 career receptions record holder with 259 grabs. In 2007, Smith coached true freshman tailback Nic Grigsby to a 700-yard performance in seven starts, emerging from reserve to fulltime duty. The 1995 Kansas State graduate has coached the top three career rushing leaders in K-State history in Darren Sproles, Eric Hickson and Mike Lawrence. Smith also directed a running back to the single-season rushing record in three of his last five seasons at K-State during his first tenure, including Sproles, a first team All-American. Sproles surpassed the mark during the 2003 season with 1,986 yards, which ranked as the 10th best rushing total in NCAA history. At the conclusion of the 2003 regular season, Sproles finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting and was the runner-up for the Doak Walker Award. A second team All-Big 12 pick in 2002, Sproles rushed for 1,465 yards and 17 touchdowns. Sproles concluded his four-year career as the Big 12’s leader in all-purpose yards with 6,812 and the Wildcats’ career rushing leader with 4,979 yards. In 2001, Josh Scobey set the single-season rushing record and career rushing TD mark at KState with 1,263 yards and 31 career TDs. After spending the 1992 season in the NFL with Kansas City, Smith returned to K-State as a student assistant. As a graduate assistant in 1995 and 1996, Smith assisted Greg Peterson with the receivers and helped tutor wideouts Kevin Lockett and Mitch Running, who became just the fifth receiving tandem in Big Eight history to snag at least 50 passes in the same season.

In nine seasons as running backs coach, Smith coached six former backs in the NFL, including David Allen (Jacksonville and St. Louis), Rock Cartwright (Washington), Joe Hall (Kansas City), Frank Murphy (Chicago, Tampa Bay, Houston and Miami), Scobey (Arizona) and Sproles (San Diego). During his playing career, Smith was known as one the Big Eight’s all-time great receivers. He concluded his playing career as the Big Eight’s second-leading receiver with 179 receptions, trailing just All-American Hart Lee Dykes. The total of 179 catches ranked 40th in NCAA history at the time. Smith was named third team All-American by The Associated Press in 1991 and honorable mention All-American in 1989 by the AP and UPI. Smith was also a two-time All-Big Eight selection (1989 and 1991). His career total of 2,457 receiving yards was third-best in Big Eight history behind Dykes and 1972 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers. The total was bolstered by nine 100yard receiving games, which was a school record at the time. Smith also posted three of the top four games in K-State history with 179 yards vs. New Mexico (1990), 174 yards vs. Washington (1991) and 172 vs. Nebraska (1991). Smith also owned three of the top five reception games in school history, including 13 catches for 166 yards vs. Missouri in 1989. He led the Big Eight as a sophomore in 1989 and was seventh in the nation with 70 catches for 816 yards. In 1990, he had 46 receptions for 796 yards and tallied 55 for 768 in 1991.

SCORING SUMMARY FIRST QUARTER KS - Valentine 4 yd run (Rossman kick), 13:03 KS - Freeman 1 yd run (Rossman kick), 2:11

GAME NOTES  The Kansas State Athletics Department welcomed four new members to the K-State Football Ring of Honor, David Allen, Martin Gramatica, Terence Newman and Mark Simoneau. The total number of the fraternity now stands at 10.  The Wildcats tallied their highest homeopening point total under head coach Ron Prince with the 45 points. The previous high was 34 against San Jose State on Sept. 8, 2007. It was also the largest home victory for K-State since the Wildcats defeated Missouri State 61-10 on Sept. 15, 2007.  Junior Keithen Valentine and freshman Logan Dold each made their debuts in a Wildcat uniform. Valentine made his KState debut a successful one, as he took his first carry four yards for a Wildcat touchdown on the first offensive play of the season. Dold debuted in the backfield during the first quarter, becoming the first true freshman running back to appear in a season-opener in school history and the second to appear during his true rookie season.  Seven Wildcats made their first career starts, four on offense and three on defense. Getting the nod in the starting lineup on offense were receiver Ernie Pierce, running back Keithen Valentine and offensive lineman Edward Prince. Defensively, tackle Brandon Balkcom, linebacker Olu Hall and defensive back Blair Irvin collected their first-career starts.

SECOND QUARTER KS - Banks 30 yd pass from Freeman (Rossman kick), 9:38 KS - Brown 6 yd pass from Freeman (Rossman kick), 2:03

GAME 1 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Josh Freeman threw two of his three touchdown passes to Brandon Banks and ran for two more scores, helping Kansas State beat North Texas 45-6. Kansas State overpowered North Texas on both sides of the ball, scoring on six of its first seven possessions to take a 42-0 lead, holding the Mean Green to 205 total yards—81 in the first half. Freeman was quietly efficient to open his third season as Kansas State’s starter, connecting with Banks on a 30-yard touchdown in the second quarter, then on a 43-yarder to put the Wildcats up 35-0 less than a minute into the second half. Freeman also hit Lamark Brown on 6-yard touchdown pass late in the second quarter, finishing 18-for-24 for 232 yards to pass Chad May and Carl Straw for second on Kansas State’s all-time passing list (5,365). He scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter and on an 8-yarder midway through the third. The Wildcats overwhelmed North Texas on offense as well, scoring less than two minutes into the game on a 4-yard run by walk-on Keithen Valentine on the way to a 28-0 halftime lead.

2009 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

GAME 2 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Josh Freeman ran for two scores and threw for two more and Kansas State returned two blocked punts for touchdowns for the first time in school history in a 69-10 rout of Montana State. On their final possession, the Wildcats merely pounded the ball up the middle with second- and third-teamers. They had a fourth-and-8 on the Montana State 17 but ran up the middle rather than kicking a field goal. Kansas State also scored on a fumble recovery while ringing up their most points since a school-record 76-0 pounding of Ball State in 2000. Freeman, a week after accounting for five touchdowns in a 45-6 victory over North Texas, hit 16 of 21 passes for 288 yards, including two 36-yard touchdown strikes, before being lifted midway through the third quarter. According to the Montana State media guide, the 69 points tied for the most points allowed by the Bobcats since 1950. They also gave up 69 to Florida in 1988. While rolling up 481 total yards, the Wildcats averaged 7.3 yards per play. On Montana State’s first punt, the ball was snapped over Eric Fisher’s head and rolled to the 1. Fisher kicked it through the Kansas State end zone, and the ensuing illegal kick penalty gave the Wildcats a first-and-goal from the 1. Freeman carried it over on the next play. On Montana State’s second punt, the Wildcats scored their second touchdown. Adrian Stryker rushed up the middle to block the kick and Ernie Pierce recovered in the end zone. Leading 45-7 in the third quarter, the Wildcats did it again. Courtney Herndon came up the middle to block Fisher’s punt and Chris Carney picked up the ball on the 5 and ran into the end zone untouched.

 The 69 points scored by K-State were the most since scoring a school-record 76 against Ball State in 2000. Also, Kansas State’s 31 first-quarter points were the most since the Wildcats tallied 34 in the first quarter against Ball State in 2000.  For the second-consecutive week, Kansas State scored a touchdown on its first play from scrimmage. In their first game against North Texas, the Wildcats’ scoring drive was a four-yard score which took five seconds, the quickest in school history to start a season. Against Montana State, K-State scored on a one-yard touchdown run in three seconds, which was the quickest since the Wildcats also scored in three seconds against Florida International in 2005.  The Wildcats recorded two blocked punts for touchdowns in a single game for the first time in school history. Kansas State also blocked two punts in the same game for the first time since Rashaad Washington blocked a pair of punts against Colorado in 2003.  Linebacker Ulla Pomele recorded Kansas State’s first turnover of the season, forcing and recovering a Montana State fumble in the first quarter. Just over three minutes later, defensive back Ray Cheatham recorded K-State’s first interception of the season. Both turnovers led to scoring drives.

GAME NOTES  With 22 completions by Josh Freeman, the junior set the Kansas State career completions record. The old record was held by Lynn Dickey (501;1968-70).  Junior punt returner Deon Murphy returned a third-quarter punt 86 yards for a touchdown. It was Murphy’s second-career punt return for a touchdown, the first coming against Missouri State on Sept. 15, 2007. The 86-yard return was the eighth-longest in school history.  Junior wide receiver Brandon Banks tallied 153 receiving yards against Louisville, becoming the Wildcats’ first 100-yard receiver since Jordy Nelson tallied 125 against Nebraska on Nov. 10, 2007, and the first receiver to collect over 150 yards since Nelson had a school-record 214 against Iowa State on Nov. 3, 2007.  Junior tight end Jeron Mastrud collected his first-career touchdown reception, a 52yarder from Josh Freeman.  True freshman defensive end Brandon Harold recorded his first-career sack for a seven-yard loss, while he recorded two tackles for loss.

FOURTH QUARTER LOU - Anderson 27 yd run (Dougherty kick), 12:08 KS - Mastrud 52 yd pass from Freeman (Rossman kick), 11:29 LOU - Dougherty 26 yd field gial, 5:13 LOU - Banks 59 yd pass from Freeman (Freeman rush), 3:23

GAME 3 LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Junior quarterback Josh Freeman threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough as K-State dropped a 38-29 decision to Louisville at Papa John’s Stadium. Freeman, who eclipsed the 300-yard barrier for the first time on the season, broke the Kansas State career completions record of 501 held by Lynn Dickey (1968-70) midway through the contest. He went 22-of-42 through the air with three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. Receiver Brandon Banks had career day with seven catches for 153 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He became the first Wildcat since Jordy Nelson in 2007 to post a 150-yard receiving day. However, Louisville overpowered the visiting Wildcats with 578 yards of total offense, including 303 on the ground. Freshman Victor Anderson ran for 176 yards and three touchdowns for the Cardinals, as Anderson scored on runs of 29, 56 and 27 yards. Louisville quarterback Hunter Cantwell threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns, Doug Beaumont had nine receptions for 119 yards and the Cardinals’ defense held Freeman largely in check when it mattered. Deon Murphy had a spectacular 86-yard punt return for the Wildcats, but Kansas State turned the ball over three times and had trouble solving Louisville’s three-pronged rushing attack of Anderson, Brock Bolen and Bilal Powell. Kansas State tried to rally, cutting it to nine on two late touchdown passes by Freeman, but Louisville’s defense got one last stop with just over two minutes left to end the comeback.

2009 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

GAME 4 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Josh Freeman broke Kansas State’s career yardage record and threw three touchdowns to help the Wildcats beat Louisana-Lafayette 45-37. Freeman was 21-of-28 for 272 yards and has 6,238 career yards to eclipse Lynn Dickey for No. 1 all-time on the Kansas State list. Freeman, a 6-foot-6, 250-pound junior who has started every game since his freshman year, also ran for two TDs. He threw TDs of 12 and 3 yards to Deon Murphy in the first half and connected with Brandon Banks on a 53yard scoring play that made it 42-23 with 1:49 left in the third. But the Cajuns and Tyrell Fenroy, who had three touchdowns and 183 yards rushing, were not done. The Wildcats needed a trick play on fourth down and a key third-down pass by Freeman to hold the ball for more than 7 minutes and kick a field goal with 1:37 left to preserve the win. Right after Banks’ TD, Fenroy broke loose on a 69-yard touchdown gallop. Then halfway through the fourth quarter Fenroy’s 1-yard scoring run sliced the margin to 42-37. The Cajuns looked like they would get the ball back with plenty of time to try for the winning TD. But for the second week in a row, Kansas State snapped the ball directly to Tysyn Hartman on a fake punt and he ran 4 yards on fourth-and-two. On third-and-six with 3:15 left, Freeman hit Banks with a 17-yard pass, and Brooks Rossman kicked a 26-yard field goal for the final margin. Lamark Brown, a wide receiver, started at running back for Kansas State and had 137 yards, including a 3-yard touchdown that put Kansas State on top 35-17 in the third quarter.

 Lamark Brown made his collegiate debut as a running back in the K-State backfield, transitioning from wide receiver. He finished the game with 29 carries for 142 yards and his first career rushing touchdown. He became the second Wildcat this season to surpass the century mark in his debut in the Wildcat backfield (Keithen Valentine, 119, Aug. 30, 2008).  Wide receiver Brandon Banks tallied 127 receiving yards and a touchdown against Louisiana. With his 53-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter, Banks extended his streak with at least one touchdown reception to four games, the longest streak since Jordy Nelson’s school record streak of seven consecutive contests to open the 2005 season.  Defensive end Ian Campbell registered 1.5 sacks to go with a personal season-high 11 total tackles. Campbell improved his career sack total to 18.5, moving him into a tie for seventh in school history with Tim Colston (1992-95).  At halftime, the Kansas State athletic department honored its 2008 Hall of Fame induction class. The 2008 honorees were legendary head football coach Bill Snyder and outgoing university president Jon Wefald. Snyder coached the Wildcats for 17 seasons, registering a school-record win total of 136 victories and led the school to 11 bowl appearances and one Big 12 championship (2003).

GAME NOTES  Kansas State blocked the only punt of the day by Texas Tech and returned it for a touchdown during the fourth quarter. Defensive back Courtney Herndon blocked the punt and wide receiver Ernie Pierce returned the loose ball 15 yards for the touchdown. It was the second time in the first five games that Herndon blocked a punt and Pierce registered the touchdown (first: vs. Montana State). Payton Kirk blocked a Texas Tech extra point in the fourth quarter as well.  Ernie Pierce tallied one catch for 33 yards and one touchdown and a blocked punt return for a touchdown. It was Pierce’s first touchdown reception since Nov. 24, 2007, at Fresno State and the longest reception of his career.  Defensive tackle Brandon Balkcom tallied his first career interception during the fourth quarter.  K-State’s touchdown-scoring drive to open the second half was the second opening drive of the second stanza during the season to result in a touchdown for K-State (first: Aug. 30 vs. North Texas). It was also the second time this season (Aug. 30 vs. North Texas) that K-State scored on its opening possessions of each half this season.

GAME 5 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Graham Harrell threw six touchdown passes and shattered the Texas Tech record for career yards passing, leading the No. 7 Red Raiders past Kansas State 58-28 in the teams' Big 12 opener. Lyle Leong snared three touchdown passes from Harrell, who was 38-for51 for 454 yards. Texas Tech, with its highest ranking in 32 years, scored on seven straight possessions and did not attempt a punt until Stefan Loucks replaced Harrell late in the fourth quarter. The Red Raiders rolled up 626 yards of total offense. Leong had scoring catches of 1 yard in the first quarter, 15 in the second and 7 in the third against the outmanned Wildcats (3-2, 0-1). Michael Crabtree had nine catches for 107 yards and two TDs. Facing fourth-and-inches from their own 29 late in the first quarter, the Red Raiders sent Shannon Woods on a sweep. But he was stuffed, and four plays later, Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman scored on a 1-yard run, knotting the game 14-all. Freeman, who a week earlier had become his own school’s career passing leader, was 13-for-28 for 170 yards, including a 33-yard TD pass to Ernie Pierce. Pierce also scored on an 18-yard return of a blocked punt late in the game.

GAME 6 COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Junior quarterback Josh Freeman completed 21 of 26 passes and ran for four touchdowns as Kansas State snapped its five-game losing streak to Texas A&M with a 44-30 win. Courtney Herndon returned a blocked punt for a touchdown for the Wildcats, who moved the ball at will in the first half and led 27-10 at the break. Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson tried to rally the Aggies, but the comeback stalled when Kansas State’s defense stuffed Jorvorskie Lane twice at the goal line midway through the fourth quarter. Freeman led a 98-yard drive the other way and sealed the win on a short touchdown run with 4:37 left. The Wildcats found the end zone on their opening drive for the fourth time this season. Freeman threw a 32-yard pass to Brandon Banks before scoring on a 12-yard run just over three minutes into the game. Kansas State forced a punt by Justin Brantly, who was blocked by linebacker Reggie Walker. Herndon’s touchdown made it 13-3. The Wildcats glided down the field again on their next possession. Logan Dold finished the drive with a 4-yard TD run. Freeman went 6-for-7 and scampered for 12 yards on a fourth-and-1 from the Aggies 28. Freeman finished a quick drive with another touchdown run with 4:20 left in the half. At that point, the Wildcats had 269 total yards and were averaging 7.7 yards per play.

 Kansas State’s win over Texas A&M marked the first time in 11 years the Wildcats have been victorious against the Aggies. The last victory over Texas A&M was a 36-17 win in College Station on Oct. 18, 1997.  The Wildcats marched 98 yards in 16 plays, using 7:24 of the clock on a fourthquarter touchdown drive. The scoring drive - capped off by a Josh Freeman rushing touchdown - was the longest in terms of yards and time of the season.  Kansas State blocked Texas A&M’s first punt of the day and returned it for a touchdown. Linebacker Reggie Walker recorded his first-career blocked punt, while junior defensive back Courtney Herndon returned the ball 10 yards for the touchdown. It was the fourth blocked punt returned for a touchdown of season, while it was the sixth blocked kick of the season (two extra points). The block marked the first time Aggie punter Justin Brantly had a punt blocked in 128 attempts  The 44 points scored by Kansas State were the most in a conference game since the Wildcats racked up 51 points in a win over Baylor on Oct. 27, 2007. It was also the most points scored in a Big 12 road game since 45-0 shutout at Iowa State on Nov. 8, 2003.

Josh Freeman was 21-of-26 and ran for four touchdowns in the Wildcats’ win at Texas A&M. WWW.K-STATESPORTS.COM 115

SCORING SUMMARY FIRST QUARTER KS - Rossman 37 yd field goal, 12:05 KS - Rossman 53 yd field goal, 6:57 SECOND QUARTER CU - Stewart 4 yd run (Goodman kick), 12:25 CU - McKnight 21 yd pass from Hansen (Goodman kick), 6:19

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Tyler Hansen sparked Colorado to a 14-13 win over Kansas State. Hansen, whose photo wasn’t even included in Colorado’s media guide and who was planning to redshirt this season, made a surprise appearance in the first quarter and energized the Buffs while confusing the Wildcats. Although Cody Hawkins mostly handed off to Rodney Stewart (29 carries for 141 yards), he also hit J.R. Smith for 22 yards on third-and-15 from his own 29 on a drive. His fourth-and-4 pass to Smith, however, fell incomplete and Kansas State took over at its own 31 with 59 seconds remaining. Josh Freeman’s fourth-down desperation heave to Brandon Banks at the Buffs’ 20-yard line was broken up by free safety Ryan Walters on the last play of the game. Brooks Rossman kicked field goals of 37 and 53 yards but was wide right from 47 yards and wide left from 42 in the first half. The Wildcats pulled to 14-13 when Freeman scored untouched on 17yard keeper early in the third quarter.

THIRD QUARTER KS - Freeman 17 yd run (Rossman kick), 10:49

GAME NOTES  Kansas State blocked a 48-yard field goal attempt by Colorado’s Aric Goodman in the second quarter. Ian Campbell blocked the kick, while Ray Cheatham recovered. It was the Wildcats’ nation-leading seventh blocked kick of the season and pulled them within one from tying the school record of eight in 2003.  The Wildcats recovered their fourth fumble of the year as Ulla Pomele forced a Rodney Stewart fumble in the first quarter, which was recovered by Joshua Moore at the KState 28-yard line. Kansas State recorded another turnover in the first half as Moore intercepted a Tyler Hansen pass with 3:12 left in the second quarter. It was Moore’s first interception of the season and the second of his career.  The Kansas State defense held Colorado to just 14 points Saturday night, the lowest point total given up in a conference game since Baylor scored 14 points on Oct. 27, 2007.  Place kicker Brooks Rossman hit 2-of-4 field goals against the Buffaloes, including a long of 53 yards. The 53-yarder was the longest of his career and tied for the eighth-longest in school history. Rossman’s previous career high also came against Colorado, a 52-yarder on Oct. 13, 2007.

2009 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

GAME 8 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — DeMarco Murray racked up 167 total yards and four touchdowns, and No. 4 Oklahoma sustained a 21-point Kansas State rally in the highest-scoring first half in school history to beat the Wildcats 58-35. Sam Bradford added three touchdown passes in a wild first half in which the Sooners (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) gave up a 28-7 lead before taking control with 27 consecutive points of their own. The capper was a 68-yard punt return touchdown by redshirt freshman Ryan Broyles that gave the Sooners a 55-28 halftime lead. That total matched the school record for points in a half, set in the second half of Oklahoma’s victory over the Wildcats in 1942. Josh Freeman threw for a career-high 478 yards for K-State, with all three of his touchdown passes coming as the Wildcats charged back to tie it at 28. But with 8 minutes left in the half, the Sooners found time to score four touchdowns. With Oklahoma leading 21-7, Freeman rallied K-State back with touchdown passes on three straight drives — a 77-yarder to Brandon Banks, a 29-yarder to Jeron Mastrud and a 9-yarder to Murphy — to tie the game at 28. Freeman’s second touchdown pass pushed him past Ell Roberson’s school record for TDs in a career.

 The final score of 58-35 was the most combined points (93) in the series between the Wildcats and Sooners since Oct. 15, 1988, when the teams combined for 94 points. The first half combined point total of 83 would have been the third-highest scoring game in the history of the series.  Wide receiver Deon Murphy registered seven catches for 94 yards and two touchdowns and also amassed 187 yards in returns, totalling 279 all-purpose yards. His first kick-off return of the game was a 75yard effort during the first quarter, which set-up his own eight-yard touchdown reception.  Wide receiver Ernie Pierce notched careerhighs with 11 catches for 176 yards, including a career-long 61-yard reception in the second quarter. His yardage total was the most by a Wildcat since Jordy Nelson registered 214 yards at Iowa State on Nov. 3, 2007, while his 11 receptions were the highest since Nelson hauled in 15 at Fresno State on Nov. 24, 2007.  Wide receiver Brandon Banks registered five catches for 145 yards and one touchdown, including a 77-yarder in the first quarter. It was the longest pass play from scrimmage since Oct. 15, 2005, at Texas Tech when Allan Evridge connected with Jordy Nelson on an 80-yard touchdown.

GAME NOTES  Lamark Brown rushed 21 times for 68 yards and a career-high three touchdowns. He became the first K-State running back to tally three rushing touchdowns since James Johnson had three against Missouri State on Sept. 15, 2007.  Kansas State blocked a 34-yard field goal attempt by Kansas’ Jacob Branstetter in the second quarter. Ian Campbell blocked the kick, while Ray Cheatham recovered. It was the second time this season Campbell blocked a field goal attempt and Cheatham advanced the ball (vs. Colorado). It also was the Wildcats’ school-record tying eighth blocked kick of the season. The last time K-State blocked eight kicks was in 2003.  Defensive end Ian Campbell collected seven tackles, including 2.5 for loss. Campbell moved into sole possession of fifth place on the school’s all-time list with 20.5 sacks.  Linebacker Alex Hrebec tallied a careerbest nine tackles against Kansas, besting his previous career high of seven the week prior.  Kansas State scored its first points of the day with 8:04 left in the third quarter. The score marked the 149th straight game the Wildcats have scored, the ninth-longest streak in the nation.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lamark Brown rushed for three scores but Jake Sharp had 257 total yards and tied a school record with four touchdowns, as Kansas defeated rival Kansas State 52-21. Kansas ran for six touchdowns—one short of the school record—and harassed Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman into four turnovers. Brown was the only bright spot for Kansas State, scoring on runs of 4, 11 and 1 yards, though all three came after the game was out of reach. Sharp had 118 yards on nine carries and scored on runs of 4, 20 and 47 yards in the first quarter to put Kansas up 21-0. Sharp added a 2-yard touchdown run in the third to put Kansas up 45-7 and finished with a careerbest 181 yards rushing. He also caught five passes for 76 yards. Freeman threw an interception on his third pass attempt of the game, the ball fluttering into the hands of Kansas’ Russel Brorsen at the Jayhawks’ 42 after he was hit from behind by defensive end Jake Laptad. Sharp scored 70 seconds later, bursting off right tackle on a 20-yard run. Freeman finally got the Wildcats going late in the second quarter, converting a pair of fourth downs to get the Wildcats to the 1-yard line, only to lose the ball while trying to reach over the goal line.

2009 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

GAME 10 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Jeremy Maclin scored three touchdowns and totaled 278 all-purpose yards, helping No. 13 Missouri shake off a slow start in its home finale and beat Kansas State 41-24. Missouri took control with 17 points in the final 5:46 of the half, including a pair of touchdown passes from Chase Daniel to Maclin. Maclin had eight receptions for 118 yards and two TDs, four carries for 84 yards and a third TD on a 56-yard jaunt on a direct snap. Kansas State scored twice—Brandon Banks’ 93-yard run and a 3-yard touchdown pass from Carson Coffman to Banks—in the final 1:11 to make the final appear respectable. Blair Irvin’s interception ended Missouri’s first possession after only two plays, and the second drive netted one first down. Two big plays from Maclin helped the Tigers open things up. He won a foot race on a simple swing pass on a 42-yard score, one play after Will Ebner’s blocked punt, and caught a 16-yard touchdown pass on one leg in the back of the end zone. Kansas State trailed 24-3 at the half and barely avoided getting shut out in the first 30 minutes for the second straight game, getting a 43-yard field goal from Brooks Rossman on the final play.

GAME NOTES  The 92-yard scoring drive by Kansas State in the third quarter was the fourth scoring drive this season of more than 90 yards.  Brandon Banks returned a fourth-quarter kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown, marking the first kickoff returned for a score since James Johnson went 85 yards for a touchdown at Texas on Sept. 29, 2007. It was the 13th kickoff returned for a touchdown in school history and the first against Nebraska.  The game against Nebraska marked the 17th time since 1990 that K-State has scored on both defense and special teams, but the first time the Wildcats lost when doing so.  Quarterback Carson Coffman came into the game with six minutes left in the third quarter. On his first series, the Peculiar, Mo., native led K-State on a nine-play, 92yard drive, capped by a one-yard touchdown run by Coffman, the first of his career. He was also a perfect 2-for-2 passing with 68 yards on the drive, including a career-long 51-yarder to Deon Murphy.  Defensive back Courtney Herndon picked off Joe Ganz’s first pass of the game and returned it 57 yards for a touchdown. The pick was Herndon’s second of the season and third of his career, while it was the first interception returned for a touchdown by Kansas State since Ian Campbell went 41 yards for a score at Texas on Sept. 29, 2007.

GAME 11 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Junior Brandon Banks tallied 167 yards in kick returns, including a 98-yard touchdown jaunt, as Kansas State dropped a 56-28 decision to Nebraska at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Nebraska senior quarterback Joe Ganz accounted for 365 total yards and four touchdowns and the Cornhuskers dropped Kansas State for the second straight year. The Huskers did it with a balanced attack this time, punishing the Wildcats at the line of scrimmage for 340 yards and four touchdowns rushing. They complemented it with Ganz’s arm to finish with 610 total yards. Freeman, the nation’s 13th-ranked passer at 292 yards per game, faced constant pressure and was sacked five times. He had to hurry or throw off his back foot on several other throws, going 7-for-18 for 114 yards before being replaced by Carson Coffman midway through the third quarter. Courtney Herndon intercepted Ganz’s first pass of the afternoon and returned it 57 yards for a touchdown, then Freeman answered two Nebraska TDs by hitting Ernie Pierce on a 63-yard scoring pass to tie it at 14-all.

2009 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

GAME 12 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Josh Freeman threw four touchdown passes as Kansas State beat Iowa State 38-30 in the season finale for both teams. The victory enabled the Wildcats to squeeze past Iowa State for fifth place in the Big 12 North. Austen Arnaud was 31-for-45 for 440 yards and three touchdowns for Iowa State, which lost its 17th straight on the road and has given up 226 points in its last five games. Brandon Banks had seven catches for 116 yards for Kansas State, including a 20-yard touchdown, and became the sixth receiver in school history to go over 1,000 yards in a season. Josh Freeman was 17-for-30 for 279 yards and four TDs against Iowa State's weak defense. The four touchdown passes had been accomplished 12 other times. Freeman threw a beauty of a 44-yard strike to Deon Murphy, who was double-covered but caught the ball perfectly in stride. He also snapped off a 5-yard TD pass to Murphy that made it 35-17 in the third quarter and connected with Ernie Pierce on a 19-yard strike after Josh Moore interception. Lamark Brown's 1-yard run gave Kansas State a 7-0 lead in the first quarter after Ian Campbell blocked his third field goal of the year, a Kansas State record. Arnaud threw TD passes of 19 and 5 yards to R.J. Sumrall and 28 to Marquis Hamilton. His 5-yarder to Sumrall came as the final seconds of the season ticked off.

 On the opening possession of the game, Kansas State blocked an Iowa State field goal attempt, which is the ninth blocked kick of the season (four punts, three field goals and two extra points) setting a new school record in the process.  Ian Campbell blocked his third field goal of the season, setting a new single-season school record in the category.  K-State registered a one-yard touchdown plunge by Lamark Brown on its opening drive of the game, the first time since Oct. 18 at Colorado (field goal) that K-State registered points on its first possession of the game and the first time since Oct. 11 at Texas A&M that K-State carded a touchdown on its opening possession.  With one rushing touchdown, K-State finished with 26 on the season, the most since 2003.  Quarterback Josh Freeman finished the day 17-of-30 for 279 yards and a school record-tying four touchdown passes, which happened on 12 other occurrences, the last by Ell Roberson, vs. Oklahoma on Dec. 6, 2003.  Freeman finished with 20 TD passes on the season, which was a new career-high and tied him for fourth in school history with Brian Kavanagh (1996).
